As a homeschooling mom, one of my biggest challenges is keeping good reading material in front of my eleven-year-old daughter!
This girl is an avid reader, and wholesome books are always in high demand at our house; she reads books nearly as fast as I can find them!
This year, I compiled a summer reading list for pre-teen girls. Maybe this list will help you find great reads for your daughters, too!
Obviously this list is more than a girl could possibly read in one summer, which means it should get us off to a great start!
