I grew up reading all the Nancy Drew Mysteries and love them so much. When my daughter got to the age of Nancy Drew books I bought her a couple of THINKING she will love them like I did. What read a book…oh my goodness she didn’t want to read them. Trying to get my kids to put down their phones and read a book is like pulling teeth. They do read for school but any extra reading no way.
Well when I came across a Nancy Drew App that my daughter can play, she was all for that. She sat there for the whole hour playing, and I kept hearing “woohoo” or “yes, another scavenger hunt” or “Mom this game is so much fun.” Okay, so I guess the app will work for her to now who Nancy Drew is and how much fun you can have playing detective. Mysteries are always fun.
Here is my daughter letting me know how much she liked the game:
ABOUT THE APP:
As a member of Nancy Drew’s de-TECH-tive crew, choose disguises, find clues, and program your robot puppy to solve the mystery of a missing project at the Tech Fair.

Help Nancy track down suspects and discover what happened to the project before the Tech Fair competition begins!
Throughout the game, players develop and use their growing de-TECH-tive skills. Players find clues in hidden object games and apply basic coding concepts to code their puppy and help Nancy out of tight spots at the end of every chapter. It’s the ultimate introduction to computer programming as the coding challenges increase as the story progresses and leads to a super coder award.
