We know that helping your child read at an early age is good for them. While traditional education begins at age 5, 85% of the brain’s important structures are developed by age 3.
Reading aloud to your child helps strengthen the parts of their brain that deal with language, reading, logic, and processing images. These are essential elements that will help your child learn things more quickly and succeed as kids and young adults.
The clear correlation between reading and intelligence is why the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that parents read to their children. Not only is reading aloud great for your child, but it is a wonderful time for bonding and building lifelong memories with them. Plus, a story is the perfect way to help them get to sleep after a long day, while celebrating girl power.
So if you want to read a bedtime story to your daughter regularly, you’re going to need a library of books that you'll both love. Thankfully there are a ton of stories out a there that pack the double benefit of teaching a good lesson, too. We compiled a list of bedtime stories perfect for inspiring your fearless girl to pursue her interests, be herself, and thrive. Check them out below:
