100 Books for girls to grow on
$14.00
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.

You don't need to form a book club to use and enjoy "100 Books for Girls to Grow On." Shireen Dodson offers stimulating ideas that will spark your daughter's creativity and nurture a love for books.
