How to Be Like Nim from Nim's Island - wikiHow

How to Be Like Nim from Nim's Island - wikiHow

Some good advice here from wikiHow! 

  1. Wear comfortable clothes. As long as your comfy and able to move around, you don't need anything else for clothes.
  2. (I like that: And though the article comments on her being pretty, I'm glad it wasn't part of the advice. I don't think Nim fusses much at all about her looks.)
  3. 2
    Have a telescope. If you don't have one, or can't get one, then it's ok.
  4. 3
    Climb trees to get a better look at things. If you're afraid of heights, then be a bit sneaky too.
  5. 4
    Don't be afraid to go outside bare-foot. The world is open to you, and if you get a thorn in your foot, don't panic, it's just a thorn.
  6. 5
    Be daring. If you're told to go to do something, don't get scared and say,"NO!" Try it, if it's too hard, then you can stop.
  7. 6
    Let your back/front yard be your island. Take care of it and nurture it.
  8. 7
    Don't be what others want you to be. Be yourself.
