My Thoughts

An awesome role model for kids Nancy Drew


This is a awesome book for kids. She can be perfect role model for them. Some kids are addicted to video games and watching videos on mobile which might lead them on a wrong track. As a parent we all like to be the protector for our kids and teach them good things. Now a days kids more excited about TV characters of Avengers and DC Comics such as Iron Man, Captian America, Superman, Batman, so here is someone to admire and look up to. I believe this book will a perfect start for them to enhance their reading abilities and also increase their imaginative skills. The excitement and nail bitting chills chains you up till you know the end of it.

Sometimes we come across some characters so strong and admirable that it leaves a mark in your mind. One of the such character is Nancy Drew. Young, intelligent, bold and beautiful. Nancy loves solving the mystery but it also ends her up into loads of troubles while helping others. We usually fine very rare characters where the women are in the lead. Well !! fighting crimes is not an easy cup of tea. Now a days the kids have a very sharp mind, it’s better to shape them up at a early age for their better future. Reading book can increase their vocabulary and their ability to understand the meaning of the words as they come across it.
