I absolutely adored these books growing up I came so close to selling my complete set at a garage sale when we were moving A lady made me an offerd I just could not do it They gave me so much pleasure reading them when I was in elementary school and discussing them with my best friendah, memories Not ashamed to admit I read them again as an adult I have two sons, who did not take to them, but I am thrilled that my nieces now borrow them and enjoy them Trixie is about as real a young girl as can [...]
I loved the Trixie Belden series, and read probably 30 of the books I d spend every spare minute reading these books when I was 11 12 years old I imagine they d still captivate the typical pre teen s imagination in this day and age Highly recommended
I don t even care that these books were written for 10 year old girls I still reread them over and over again and I won t deny it Innocent young love, and takes me an hour to read one Still love them Not ashamed.
I ve been a fan of Trixie Belden and her never ending mystery cases since I was in elementary I don t remember what books I ve read or haven t read But from what I can remember, I did get my hands on almost all the series in my old school s library
These books were the defining books of my childhood Very innocent, but also has a main character that is independent, smart and models healthy friendships with both boys, girls and adults I can t compare it to Nancy drew because I never read Nancy Drew I want my daughter to read theses books.
Trixie and her brothers and friends introduced me to the world of mysteries probably when I was 8 or 9 I devoured the books and for my 25th birthday, my dad gave me the entire set, a very treasured gift These came long before Harry Potter, and instead of riding broomsticks, Trixie learned to ride horses All in all, a big part of my childhood, and I SO wanted to grow up to be Trixie
This was the book that started me reading for fun It s probably not the first book my mother handed to me, but it s the one I remember as being the first one I read cover to cover As an eleven year old, it was the perfect starter to ignite my imagination.
This was my favourite series as a child I remember being absolutely heartbroken when I went to the bookstore to find they were no longer being published I have kept all of my books to pass to my daughter when she is ready.
I read these all when I was a young girl and fell in love These are older books, but they are so well done, they seem timeless to me I love the friendships, the emphasis on families, and the adventures the kids go on I just love everything about it.
I had such a good time getting lost in this book It took me FLYING back to my childhood It s corny by today s standard but if you want your kid to step back into some wholesome reading this would be a good title series to introduce them to I never got into Nancy Drew but sure did like Trixie Belden loved Cherry Ames.
