My daughter's reading level has improved immeasurably since beginning these Nancy Drew books & her love of reading has escalated as every chapter ends with a minor cliffhanger. She used to complain about her school mandated 20 daily minutes of reading, but now wants to sit down together and solve these mysteries. Thank you, Carolyn Keene!
My perspective has changed since I read these books as a child--often aloud to my little sister. Wow, what terrific books! The vocabulary is rich. The sentence structures are engaging. Then consider the content. The heroine, Nancy Drew, is smart and brave. She interacts with people in appropriate ways. She actually has leadership qualities. The plots are exciting in a who-done-it fast-paced way, even though at times improbable. This is exactly one of the types of books I want my daughter to read.
This book would be great as a read-aloud to most 7 and 8-year-olds. The reading level is probably best for most slightly older children (9-12?). My daughter recently tested at sixth grade level in reading and Nancy Drew is challenging for her, especially the vocabulary. Nancy is good competition for video games. Enjoy the book(s)!
