A few good stories
Why is everything pink associated with females? Why does everything connected to barbie have to do with girls?
And must stories always be about princesses? (And what's the fascination with Snow White anyway: Two Snow White movies (english) have released in the last two months!)
Here are some stories that will trigger the geek gene in your little girl:
1. Violet the pilot
2. Akiko and the missing misp
4. Secrets, lies and Algebra
For some others, there is always the Enid Blyton mystery series: Five Findouters, Famous Five and The Secret Seven :)
