Some Favorite Books by Age for Girls

Favorite Books by Age for Girls

Just in time for summer reading and by special request here is our list of favorite read aloud books for girls.  I wrote about our favorite read alouds for boys here.  Most of my daughter’s favorites were loved by my son and vice versa, so be sure to check out both lists.  I’ve included a few duplicates if they were absolutely beloved.
Time spent reading aloud to my children, in the quiet of the evening, is among my most treasured memories… and I’m so glad we still have more memories left to make.  I love the time spent talking about the books we are reading, the world of ideas and experiences that are opened to us.  Now that my children are getting older, we are choosing our read aloud books with more and more care… knowing the finite time left to us.  Each book read is a treasure.
These are books that have been read aloud and are not necessarily reading age appropriate.  This is also not a complete list… since it would be too long.

  • Fanny’s Dream by Caralyn and Mark Buehner – One of my all time favorites, but I still getting choked up when I read it- darn it all.
  • Nonsense! by Sally Kahler Phillips – What to say when someone says something not true about you.  We still use the skills learned by reading this book!
  • Odd Velvet by Mary E. Whitcomb – It’s OK to be different… and learning to accept others who are different from you.
  • Owl Moon by Jane Yolen
  • Cookies: Bite-Size Life Lessons by Amy Krouse Rosenthal
