Books for Girls

I’m always trying to figure out how to instill confidence and motivation into my girls. I think the books they read, the games and sports they play and the role models they have are a big part of that. The other day I discovered a new website the other day chock full of amazing books for girls (thanks to my friend Lindsey on Pinterest).

Here’s What I Dug:

  • Books can be sorted by genre/category, age, price, award winners, etc.
  • There weren’t so many that it was overwhelming
  • They also featured movies
I think it’s a great little discovery tool for finding some good books for my girls. I could definitively refresh our collection right now!

    A few of my favorite books for girls are Princess Academy by Shannon Hale, Becoming Noami Leon, and Because of Winn Dixie. They are all stories about girls finding their inner strength and overcoming challenges.

    Anna Hibiscus by Atinuke… spunky African girl with little twin brothers growing up surrounded by family.

    We also love Ivy and Bean, Dodsworth in Paris and others, Mr. Putter and Tabby, The big Pippi Longstocking with illustrations by Lauren Child. I could go on all day if I didn’t have kids to tend to.

    Alas, I don’t have girls! But I always liked The Boxcar Children (boys or girls), Trixie Belden (these are old and hard to find), Nancy Drew, Anne of Green Gables, and Little Women.
