Awhile back I wrote a post on the lack of picture books with strong female characters to read with my own little girl. I'm still wishing there were more out there but here is a list of the ones we have found on our search for books that are about capable, inquisitive, brave, thoughtful, smart, adventurous girls. I truly appreciate books that we can read together that get my daughter asking questions and inspired about opportunities for adventure. What I like even more are the ones that don't try too hard to flip or assert particular gender rolls but just read with ease as a strong story.
Have any suggestions for us, please let me know! Pass this list on to other parents if you like!
