Girls need good books. Everyone needs good books, of course, but since we have both been girls who benefited from friendships with some formative classics we get all fired up about books for girls!
In this episode we realize we could talk for a week just about the Anne books and we discuss why young girls need these authors beside them as they grow up. These are some of the books at the top of our must read list that we will be sharing with our daughters (and sons, but especially our daughters).
So grab a cup of tea or a pile of laundry to fold and enjoy!
