Creative Books for Girls

Do your kids love books? Mine really do. They love reading stories every day and going to the library to pick out their new books. My husband typically does bedtime with the girls and I am in charge of bedtime for our little man, Caspian Finn. Usually about once or twice a week my husband has to work late at night and that means I’m on duty for the girls bedtime routine as well. And that means Mama is in charge of stories for the night.

The girls each get to pick out a story to be read before bed, so they usually get two stories per night. Since I don’t do bedtime with them on a regular basis, I love to read them a special story that means something to me and to them. While I don’t know if my girls will grow up and have an interest in the things I love…..sewing, cooking, crafting, decorating, ect. I do hope to share my love of these things with them, help to foster their creativity and encourage them to be independent thinkers. And I want them to know that’s it’s ok to be different.

Today I wanted to take a little time to share some books that I think are really great to read to the little ladies in your life. If you are reading this blog, I am going to guess that you and I have a lot in common, so these books spoke to me and my children, so I hope they speak to you and yours.

  1. I just bough “Extra Yarn” for my friend for her birthday…and she’s turning 28! It is a lovely book with beautiful illustrations, perfect for my knit-like-crazy friend.

  2. I love the look of these. Most recently I have discovered “Paper Dolls” by Julia Donaldson (author of “The Gruffalo”). It is a wonderful story and such a great way to introduce little girls to the joys of paper dolls.

  3. We love “The Purple Coat” by Amy Hest! I love so many things about it – the little girl’s relationship with her grandpa and that she takes a chance on something new.

  4. I need to check out your list. I wanted to also suggest Ticky Tacky Doll. One of our favorites and checked out many times at the library.

  5. I can’t wait to check these out! We like Fancy Nancy Aspiring Artist. Shoe-la-la by Karen Beaumont is fun too.

  6. I ordered one of these for my five year old yesterday. Can’t wait for it to come.
