A Book List For Girls

You’ve heard the saying, “Readers Are Leaders”

I love reading!  I like collecting books, I am not sure I will have the time to read them all but I make the excuse that my children will read them.  It makes me feel good to be surrounded by books.  Reading is an excellent way to raise godly children.  Of course, you have to be very selective on what they read.  Reading is like feeding the soul, make sure it is nutritious literature for a healthy mind.  Books have make great impact in my life and in the lives of my children.  Cultivate a love for reading by reading aloud to them everyday.

Having our daughters read is essential to their development as women of godly character.  It is part of their training.  They can learn so much about godliness, homemaking, history, science, government, music,  theology, exceptional people in history, economics and so forth.  They will need to learn a variety of subjects to help their future husbands in whatever His calling is and in teaching their own children.


A strategy I began with my first daughter was to read aloud as many books as possible.  Then my next daughter joined in the “children’s hour”.   My goal was to know what the books were about so I can assign them in the future to my other children and I know exactly what they are reading and we will be able to discuss it.  Now my older daughter is rereading the books I read to her three years ago and making lapbooks as book reports.

Some books that have a different worldview are great for sharpening the discernment in the girls.  I remember reading Little Women.  We critiqued it all the way through noting the feminism message in the story.  But we don’t read or have any romance books, or the so called “Christian romance novels.”

Here is a list that we have already read and have in line to read.  I will keep adding to this list as more books come our way.
