Did you grow up reading Encyclopedia Brown? Like My Side of the Mountain there are certain aspects of the Encyclopedia Brown books that I still recall to this day. Encyclopedia Brown taught readers to be observant and critical of our surroundings.
Donald J. Sobol passed away at the age of 87 on July 11th. I hope his legacy continues to live on, and that my daugher could read some of these books some day.
Rest in peace Mr. Sobol.
