BKLYN BookMatch Bridge Books of Adventurous Girls

As a mom of two little girls (ages 7 and 9), I understand the need for books about girls that can do anything! Here are some beginning chapter books that you can read outloud to your daughters (or sons) that feature strong-minded, independent and adventurous girls. My husband and I read these two our daughters when they were 3,4,5 and 6 years old. Now, they're reading them on their own.
