Friday Fresh Picks: 10 fun summer reads for girls age 6-9

School is out in a week and the girls are already excited about the local library’s summer reading contest. I’m sure most libraries have something like it where kids read a certain amount of books, track their progress, and hand something in to receive a prize. The girls don’t usually need the incentive to read books that they’re interested in, but a little competition doesn’t hurt! My eldest daughter recently discovered the Babysitters Club graphic novel series and is now hooked on that style of writing. Plus – she loves getting to know the book characters (and I’m so thrilled she’s finally reading it too!). I have been trying to get her to read Nancy Drew too since she loves mysteries (this is the girl who watches Matlock in the morning), and now that series is in graphic novel form too! My middle daughter loves animals and recently discovered the Dog Diaries series. She is also a fan of the American Girl Doll books too. If your Fancy Girls have similar interests or if you’re looking for some fun reads for the summer, below is a list of 10 books that my girls love. Please comment with what your daughters are loving too!

    Great picks! I have wanted to read Raina’s Babysitter’s Club, too, for myself!

    • A Fancy Girl Must

      I was trying to get my daughter into the idea of Babysitters Club for awhile, but thanks to my step-sister who got her the graphic novel for her bday, she’s now hooked! I loved that series soooo much!

  • My girls always loved the Ivy + Bean series. I read Because of Winn Dixie when Emma was in 4th grade. I love that book…some great lessons in there for adults and children. Great picks!

    • A Fancy Girl Must

      Thanks! I should read Winn Dixie then too! We have two copies 🙂
