5 Books I’m Glad My Daughter Read This Summer | Weekend Reads

So my girl is always reading.  

And, no, I’m not exaggerating when I say always. If ever a child had her nose in a book, this is THAT child!

Miss A generally reads fifty or sixty (or one hundred) books over the course of a summer (see, I wasn’t exaggerating!).

I’ve compiled a few books lists, highlighting our favorite books to read as a family (you can take a peek at those here).

Today, I want to share about FIVE special books Miss A read this summer.  

I might venture to say that these are her five favorites.

Why did she love these books so much?  And why am I so glad she read them? 

Well, here we go…

These books involve stories with horses. 

Miss A loves horses.  At least as much as she loves reading, maybe more.

So, yes, I’m very happy when she gets to mix her two loves (horses and reading) into one package!

These books were written by a Christian author.

We mamas have to be SO careful about the books we put in front of our children, don’t we?  Miss A is eleven-years old and is very careful about what she reads, but I still try to either check out reviews, get a personal recommendation, or proof read books before I hand them over to my daughter.

While it’s true that all Christian authors aren’t necessarily read-worthy, it is a good place to start!

These books portray healthy role models for girls.

I don’t know about you, but I have issues with a lot of the attitudes that are portrayed as “okay” and “normal” for girls in most literature.  Call me Victorian, but I still believe that our daughters should grow up valuing home life, character, and femininity!

I love that these books are free from sensuality, questionable language, and a glorification of bad attitudes.  The characters portrayed in the stories aren’t perfect, but they do show case Christian role models and the value of overcoming wrong behavior in the power of Christ.

So what are these 5 books? you ask, And where can I get them?

I know you’re wondering what books I’m talking about, right?

Well, here you go-

Unbroken

These are the five books in the Triple Creek Ranch series, by Rebekah A. Morris.  

The fifth title was just released a few weeks ago, so it’s brand new. Miss A read this entire series in just a few days… the books are that good!

One thought on “5 Books I’m Glad My Daughter Read This Summer!

  1. I’ll have to check out these books sometime.

    This summer my boys have been reading a lot of my childhood books.

    My oldest (11) has a favorite of the Accidental Detectives by
    Sigmund Brouwer &
    The Viking Quest series by
    Lois Walfrid Johnson.

    I enjoyed the Adventures it the Northwoods & the Riverboat Adventures (now reprinted with a name change) by the last author.

    Next on my list to get is the Farm Mystery series by Castleberry Farms Press (I read some of these as teen) &
    The Moody Family series by
    Sarah Maxwell (titus2.com)
    I think my middles would enjoy these.

    Have a great week!!
