Reading for pleasure is proven to have a positive impact on girls’ lives. A 2014 survey of just over 1,000 children by Scholastic, the children’s book publisher, found that children who are read aloud to at home are more likely to read on their own as they grow up. At a young age, reading introduces girls to new vocabulary words and as they get older it allows them to escape into fantasy worlds that teach valuable life skills. Sometimes it can be hard to find a book that has a girl as the main heroine or one that features an empowering message appropriate for your daughter. So we've done the research for you! Check out the below book recommendations that focus on girls and will encourage your daughter to read on her own.
