The Penderwicks: A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy by Jeanne Birdsall: Book Cover

The Penderwicks: A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy by Jeanne Birdsall

The delightful Penderwick sisters are some of our most cherished literary characters: Rosalind, the oldest, who has had to take on the role of mom; Skye, fiercely independent and loyal; Jane, budding author and daydreamer; Batty, lover of animals, especially Hound, the family dog. Mr. Penderwick takes his four girls for a summer away, and the adventures that follow are hilarious and heart-warming, and demonstrate the blessing of a loving family.

 

Rules by Cynthia Lord: Book Cover

Rules by Cynthia Lord

Little brothers might be lovable, but they can also be a real liability when it comes to social situations. That’s even more true in Catherine’s case. Her brother David is autistic and has a real knack for humiliating her at the most important moments.

Catherine’s feelings toward David are a jumble of deep love, responsibility, and embarrassment. There are many times that she wishes she could make her brother go away so that she could be a normal kid with normal friendships, instead of always being worried that he is going to do something horrifying, like hug someone inappropriate. When Catherine meets Jason at her brother’s clinic, she has to weigh her desire to be normal against the desire to be true to herself and those she cares about.

Girls Who Looked under Rocks by Jeannine Atkins

Do you know a girl who would rather stare into a tidal pool for hours than go to ballet class? Girls who appreciate animals and the natural world will surely enjoy this book, which chronicles the lives of six famous and influential female scientists. However, the message underlying these stories of determined and capable women has less to do with becoming a scientist and more to do with following one’s dreams, no matter the challenges.
