My ds is 7, he'll be 8 next week, he's been reading Hardy Boys for a few months, the old fashioned hardback kind we've picked up at used bookstores. He really likes them and can polish off novels really fast- in just a couple days. He also loves Bobbsy Twins, but they are harder to come by I'm finding. Do you think that Hardy Boys are age appropriate for a just turned 8 yr old boy? I read Nancy Drew when I was a kid, but not that young, read some Hardy Boys too, but I really can't remember. I guess the best way to find out is to pick one up and read it myself, but to find the time!? Any other series suggestions? We're Christians and I prefer old fashioned stuff and don't want anything too violent or with romance in it. Thanks!
