Portia the Pirate Princess
Books with adventuresome girl characters for a 4 yr old - Page 2
Here's my "problem": I'm anti-princess. So rather books that try to re-do the whole princess thing with a feminist spin, I (think) I'd like to just avoid princesses all together... For example DD doesn't know that princesses are valued for their looks so the catch in Paperbag Princess is missed. Which is good I think. She thinks princesses are dancers.
What I need is nearly super-hero like characters to go with DD's theme song. "Super DD can do everything!"
Do you know what I mean? What do you think?
That is exactly what Ladybug Girl is, I would say. She is a superhero. Have you read those? There are also lots of Dora books available. Even if you don't watch the movies, kids can relate to Dora as an adventuresome kid. Only problem with those is the stories are soooooo simple (not too impressive) but, still, my daughter (6 yrs) will search them out at the library.
