Chapter books to read with my daughter
My daughter is getting to the age where we're reading chapter books together and I'm so excited to share some of my favorite ones from when I was a kid. However, most of those books were written a long time ago and feature strong girls, but mostly white protagonists e.g. Laura Ingalls Wilder books, Anne of Green Gables, Charlotte's Web, Nancy Drew, Ramona, etc. Although I haven't read these books in a long looonnng time, I am certain they would capture her imagination and want to her love reading as much as I do. I am also certain there will be some stuff that I find cringey and discriminatory today.
We talk a lot about diversity, and have made a big effort to have a very diverse picture book library and I feel that it is a shame to go backwards in some ways.
I am a person of color. My daughter is half-white.
Anyone else thinking about this? Would welcome any thoughts, book recommendations or pointers for how to discuss this.
