I remember the nights when my younger daughter would lament that she could not yet read. While her elder sister could stay up a bit later, book in hand, she would color, play with her stuffed animals, but audibly announced her frustration that she could not yet read.
We reassured her it would happen- and happen quickly it did! Now my older girls still love our read-aloud times, but they devour books, usually faster than I can collect them at the library.
Childhood is such a sweet time for books, and there are so many lovely titles for young girls. Here are our favorites Series:
The Children of Noisy Village
American Girl Series
Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
The Magicians Nephew (all the Narnia are good, but start with these)
The Princess in Black
Up and down the River – The Fairchild Family
All of a Kind Family
Nick and Sam Series
Little House on the Prairie
