My first grader has gotten into Nancy Drew stories.... which is a huge upgrade from the Star Wars "stories" we have been reading.  Don't get me wrong- I am a fan of the intergalactic battles between good and the dark side.  But the books have not been a literary delight. 

Enter Nancy.  Last night Clarie's questions while reading were:
1.  Why does Nancy always wear dresses?
2.  What does luncheon mean?
3.  And impervious?

And my favorite: 
4. Do you think Nancy played soccer?

Thank you Carolyn Keene for writing about a girl who is strong and intelligent, even if she had to wear a dress.
