Description

An Inspiring Approach to Reading

From "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" to "Ramona the Pest to Wringer," here are 100 great books guaranteed to stir the imagination, spark conversation, and lead the way to adventure.

In "100 Books for Girls to Grow On," Shireen Dodson, author of the acclaimed "The Mother-Daughter Book Club," offers a selection of both new and classic titles. Each book has been handpicked because it is a joy to read, because it inspires mother-daughter dialogue, and because it encourages creativity beyond the book experience.

Included are brief plot summaries for each book, as well as thought-provoking discussion questions, inspired field trip ideas, fun crafts and activities, and biographies of the authors.

Let books become a springboard for encouraging your daughter's imagination. Ideas inside include:

Design and draw colorful dresses like Wanda Petronski, heroine of Eleanore Estes' "The Hundred Dresses."

Take your cue from "Harriet the Spy" and create your own stories from overheard snippets of conversation.

While reading "Caddie Woodlawn," pull out a map and trace Caddie's mother's journey from Boston to the Wisconsin frontier.

Review quote

"What a book! Should be on the bookshelf (or bedside table) of anyone who wants to inspire girls to explore themselves, their dreams and their world. By including discussion questions, activities and field trips, Shireen makes it easy to bring these great books to life. I already have a list of seven new books I want to read as a result!" Nancy GruverFounder, New Moon: The Magazine for Girls and Their Dreams"Let's give a most enthusiastic welcome to 100 Books for Girls to Grow On. It will draw girls away from television and rock music back to the enchantments of reading where they will develop their intellects and give free reign to their imaginations."Dr. Ellen S.
