it was ok
bookshelves: childhood-favorites, fiction-and-humor

Along with the Hardy Boys mystery series, the Bobbsey twins, and (yes, I'll admit it) even the occasional Nancy Drew mystery, Tom Swift was an early favorite of my youth. I started reading these books by the time I was in second grade, and enjoyed them until near the end of my elementary school years. I'm sure they would be quite dated by now, so I don't know that I can recommend them to today's youth, but I wish there had been something similar for my children...interesting books that demonstrated and taught good values (work, creativity, friendship, loyalty, patriotism, etc.) and entertained at the same time.
