Now that there is a woman running for presidency, little girls can be inspired to be one, too. A great project this summer is to empower girls, to give them confidence, and let them know they can be whatever they want. How does this relate to school? By reading! There are plenty of book options out there that teach about independent, courageous, and confident girls…just what your daughters should aspire to be. The Tutoring Center, Katy TX has prepared a summer reading list for your girls to read.

Grace for President by Kelly DiPucchio

Grace is confused when she finds out there’s never been a female president and she seeks to remedy that. Grace runs a campaign to become the first female president in her class. It’s a great story about a girl getting the place she deserves in a normally boy-ran club.

It's Me, Eloise! by Kay Thompson

Eloise is a mischief maker and kind of a spoiled brat, but she’s adorable. She has a big imagination, never-ending energy, and amazing persuasion skills. It’s a great book because Eloise is not perfect and she owns it, just like every girl should.

Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans

Madeline is a timeless book about a brave little girl who lives in a strict boarding school. Madeline always stands for what she believes in, she knows who she is, and she is a brave little girl. The story is really easy to read for younger girls and the illustrations are amazing!

Matilda by Roald Dahl

A book about a magical bookworm! Matilda teaches children that they do have a voice, even in a place full of adults. While she longs for a better home life and a caring family, she discovers the magic of books and even her own magic. At the end of the story, Matilda ends up having what she wanted the most, a loving family. This story teaches girls about independence and individuality.

Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine

Ella was gifted…or cursed with the gift of Obedience. She must do everything that people tell her to do, even if she feels it isn’t right. All throughout the story, Ella fights against that gift and she realizes that the solution was always within her and she never needed a hero. It’s a lighthearted story full of interesting, non-traditional female characters. If your children need help in reading, bring them to The Tutoring Center, Katy TX this summer.

Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren

Sure, Pippi may not be a very responsible girl, but she is high-spirited and happy. She teaches you that life isn’t all about homework and being serious; sometimes, the key to being happy and healthy is being a little mischievous. Life is about living it. We can learn from that even as adults.
