reading for little girls

posted in Uncategorized |

Precious is nearly 5.5 years old. I’m having a really hard time believing that. She’s also reading a few years beyond her age. She can pick up the NIV Bible and read it and comprehend most of it, particularly the OT stories. There are some holes in her knowledge, which is no problem considering she’s only 5! We’re working on that stuff. But this makes it very challenging for me to find age-appropriate reading material for her. Some of the stuff that is at her level covers topics I don’t want her exposed to yet. Fortunately for her she still loves to read picture books, which can often be challenging because they’re written as read-aloud books, rather than personal reading.

Today at the library I picked up a copy of one of the American Girl books. We have the set of three movies that have come out and we all really like them. Some great topics are covered and offer lots of stuff to discuss. Anyway, Precious is currently sprawled on her bed devouring that book. Samantha is her favourite doll so far and she’s enjoying reading more about her.

I’m hoping that we can get her an American Girl doll for her birthday. Of course by then she will have read all of the books from the library, but I know that she’ll still enjoy the doll.

Anyone have suggestions for good reading books for her, considering her age?

    Go to timberdoodle.com, they have some christian series that are good. Depends on reading level, if talking 3-4 grade, they have some great stuff.

    She might enjoy the slew of Betsy books by Carolyn Haywood. I loved these books as a kid. They are pretty easy reading, but thick. Abeka has a great set of readers you can get - I really love the second grade readers there. Other little girl books that come to mind to try: Cynthia Rylant’s series on The Cobble Street Cousins, the Betsy and Tacy series by Maud Hart Lovelace, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle books by Betty MacDonald are awesome, and my kids have enjoyed the Magic Tree House series when very young. I was against them when Mom first suggested those due to the word magic, but they are really good for young readers. I may leave another comment here if I think of others. I love children’s books!!
