I'm So Proud...
...because the day has finally come when my daughter has become obsessed with detective books! I've been collecting them for years now (of course, I read them all as a kid~mostly from the library) and have been so looking forward to the day when my children would read them. I loved, loved, loved these books!! I was Nancy Drew and I'm sure I drove my parents crazy creating a mystery out of everything.
This past year, my daughter first caught interest in detective stories when she read a Nate the Great book. Very cute books, I must say, and even though I didn't read them when I was younger, they are from a couple of generations ago. She is also getting into The Magic Treehouse books plus a few random juvenile mystery books I saved from childhood.
She is also getting very much interested in the ones I've been collecting all this time, even though she probably won't really start reading them for a little while yet.
But waiting patiently in our Learning Room is Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys, Trixie Belden, the Bobbsey Twins and Brains Benton, along with a few others, whenever she's ready.
Oh, and little brother is checking them out, too. He's just starting to read, but he really likes the cover pictures:)
What are some of your favorite childhood books?
