Empowering Picture Book Reads for Girls

I came across this worthwhile list today – it is, however, loaded onto 15 different pages in order to create ad revenue for the site.  Here is the article.

One paragraph per slow-loading add-riddled page is inconvenient – so here, have a shortcut.  Now you and I can print the list out and take it to the library this week.

1) Sally Jean, the Bicycle Queen, by Cari Best, illustrated by Christine Davenier

2) Brave Irene, by William Steig

3) Annie Bananie, by Leah Komaiko, illustrated by Laura Cornell

4) Tar Beach, by Faith Ringold

5) I Like Myself! by Karen Beaumont, illustrated by David Catrow

6) Sheila Rae, the Brave, by Kevin Henkes

7) Madeline Books, by Ludwig Bemelmans

8)) Eloise Books, by Kay Thompson, illustrated by Hilary Knight

9) 17 Things I’m Not Allowed To Do Anymore, by Jenny Offill, illustrated by Nancy  Carpenter

10) Strega Nona, Her Story, by Tomie dePaola

11) Amanda’s Perfect Hair, by Linda Milstein, illustrated by Susan Meddaugh
