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.
