quality literature: pollyanna
i think if i'd had a girl i would have a much larger personal reference of book suggestions to pull from. i'll share them here for all of you who have little girls or who enjoy children's literature. from my sister's bookshelf i remember heidi, girl of the limberlost, rebecca of sunnybrook farm, little women (and all the sequels), and, of course, the little house series. in my pre-teen years i collected all the books from the anne of green gables and emily of new moon series. and then in my twenties, as a middle school teacher, i was very much into newbery award winners. some favorites of those, perfect for young girls, were the midwife's apprentice, ella enchanted, walk two moons, catherine called birdy, missing may, and sarah plain and tall. enjoy!
