We’re partial to girl books around here. Poor Jerm is totally outnumbered and he doesn’t have much time to read these days, anyway. Here are a few that make the list of favorite girly books:
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
Well duh. What kind of list of girl list would this be if Little Women wasn’t on it?
Eight Cousins/Rose in Bloom, also by Louisa May Alcott
My personal favorites of Louisa May Alcott.
Calico Captive by Elizabeth George Speare
Although The Witch of Blackbird Pond is my favorite book of Elizabeth George Speare’s, I liked Calico Captive enough to read it five or six times growing up.
Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O’Dell
This is another book my mom read aloud to me (and my siblings) so it’s kind of a nostalgic pick, but it’s a fascinating story, too.
The Nancy Drew series (the original books) by Carolyn Keene
Although I read the newer books too, it’s the old books that I want my girls to read in a few years. Loved them and desperately wish I had kept the copies from my childhood.
Do you have any favorite girls books? I’m always on the lookout for read-alouds!
