Our Favorite Empowering Books for Girls

Our favorite books for girls of all ages. These stories empower our daughters to be strong, proactive, and self-confident.

The Paper Bag Princess is not exactly a new book (it has been around for almost 20 years), but it’s one that we read a lot in our house.

Here’s another princess book we’ve been reading and enjoying—Princess Hyacinth: the Surprising Tale of a Girl Who Floated.

The Brave Little Seamstress by Mary Pope Osborne and illustrated by Giselle Potter

Princess Grace by Mary Hoffman and illustrated by Cornelius Van Wright and Ying-Hwa Hu

We love Princess Grace as well as Amazing Grace, Hoffman’s first book about this imaginative and independent little girl.

Cinder Edna by Ellen Jackson and illustrated by Kevin O’Malley

The Princess Knight by Cornelia Funke and illustrated by Kerstin Meyer

We really like this book, as well as Cornelia’s Pirate Girl!

The Apple-Pip Princess by Jane Ray
