A patron came to the desk today, asking for a “girly beginner reader.” Her daughter enjoyed the Fancy Nancy picture books and beginning readers. She wanted something that would appeal strongly to her daughter. Unfortunately, I couldn’t think of anything that was ‘girly’ enough.
I ended up recommending two picture books that mom could help read: Princess Bess Gets Dressed and Ladybug Girl. Mom took both gratefully. Are there any other pircture books or beginner readers with similar girl appeal (fancy clothing, make up, costumes, etc.)?
