This lovely article in the NY Times about the impact of the Nancy Drew books actually brought a tear to my eye. I loved the Nancy Drew Files as a kid and read them as fast as I could get my hands on them. I loved her tenacity and perhaps, unknowingly, looked to her as a role model of strength, independence, and analytical thinking. I'm pleased to read any article that honors the affect of children's literature, but especially when the books referred to happen to be some of my personal favorites.
