I found this book when my daughter was 3 or 4 years old. It served as the ultimate guidebook for her early reading years. Not only did the book lead me back to childhood favorites, all with most inspiring heroines, but introduced me to classics I'd missed liked "Understanding Betsy." Whenever a friend had a daughter I'd give them the book as a gift. When I met the author at a school event; it was as though I'd met my hero, or should I say heroine?

I definitley found books I'm planning to try (pre-reading for my girls). Caveat - they should be closely considered as some contained mature/sensitive topics that should be discussed vs. just turning your child loose on them. A lot of ethnic/cultural/religious inclusions as well.

A great resource for finding books with strong, independent female lead characters. It is copyrighted 1997 - I would love to find another, more recent book like this. I have found so many wonderful books for my daughter, from beautifully illustrated short stories and folktales to novels. Her TBR list is growing as fast as mine!

I have already read many of the books listed in here but I have found some new gems as well. This is a definite must have source book for great books for girls.

I like reading lists of books and getting ideas for what to read next. I'd never read one just for girls.
