    Default Anti-princess reading list

    Snow White and Cinderella certainly have their place in all children's hearts. But if you want your kids to grow up believing that girls should dream of more than just kissing the prince, check out these books.

    Each of them features strong, smart, spunky girl protagonists that want to eat bugs, get first place in the science fair and grow up to be a teacher, a doctor, a firefighter or even a diva.

    Free to Be You and Me was great, really popular when I was a kid. My friends and I all had it- the record and book, the songs were great.

    Me and my girls still sing 'Williams Doll' occasionaly when drunk.
    All of God's children are not beautiful. Most of God's children are, in fact, barely presentable.

    One of my sister's friends recently got the cd for my niece (the friend said it was her fave growing up). We're always singing the songs now, it's hilarious. They are so Broadway/dramatic but great!

    Great post! We're headed to the library after school. I'll take this list with us.
