Books for Girls
Here are some beautiful picture books we have read this year* that are inspirational for little girls:
Interdependent Dames - This book is about the girls and women who helped to win the fight for out Independence. Revolutionary War history does talk a lot about men, these stories show how females need and can be strong, creative and make a difference.
Thank You, Sarah - About a very interesting wife and mother who responsible for promoting Thanksgiving among other things. After becoming a widow, she started a writing career to support her children. This book makes me want to read more about this interesting lady, Sarah Hale.
Louisa May and Mr. Thoreau's Flute - Story of Louisa May Alcott as a girl, and how she was influenced by Henry David Thoreau.
This is not an exhaustive list, just a quick, short one. I will probably add more though out the year.
*We read these books during my daughter's 3rd grade year.
