Classic Books & Poetry Your Daughter Should Be Reading
Femininity is fast becoming a thing of the past. It's becoming seen as weakness, that feminine women are merely doormats for men. Little girls are not being taught to cherish girlhood, to cherish being a woman. That being kind and caring and the gentler sex is not important any more.
The Little White Horse
Read to find empathy with one who understands what it means to wait for your one true love, what happens when one is easily persuaded, and that waiting is all worth it in the end.
Pride & Prejudice
Sense and Sensibility
Christina Rossetti Poetry
To see Christ and love in a way you've never seen them before.
Little House on the Prairie
Read to escape back into a world of Indians and covered wagons, with lessons learned when the world was new and thriving, to learn that the world is not an easy place, and that the first women to travel the west were not weak and incapable, but endured hardships with strength and perseverance.
Anne of Green Gables
Fill your daughters with authenticity, bravery, femininity, and strength. Show them what truth looks like and teach them to care for it, gently and tenderly, as we were meant to.
