That's why I'd like some authors.  She LOVES princess stories.  I'd really like a chapter book with a princess in it to read to her and maybe some easy readers for her as well.  We can't just go to the "Princess Section" of the library.....tho that would be great :)

Quoting SweetPea2004:

Have you taken her to the library, to expand her selection of reading?

 It's not princess, but the Cam Jansen series by David Adler could be fun to read together. Cam is a 5th gr girl w/ a photographic memory who solves mysteries. Don't let Cam's age fool you- the books are on an easier reading level.

There are all sorts of easy-reader books now for Pinkalious, Barbie, just about anything Disney, Littlest Pet Shop. . .

When all else fails, ask your friendly children's librarian. He/she will be able to help you find all sorts of choices.

I meant expand beyond princess, I just have an issue with the grammer issues in the fairy books that are currently popular.

OH!  Yes, we do.  We have quite a HUGE library at home.  But my mom has been taking her to the public library every other week or so to get "new" books.  And she's just on a princess theme right now.  I have NO clue why.  NOT fairies tho.  And she will watch any movie and listen to any story that has a princess in it (or a girl that "could be" a princess).  She doesn't like the Babysitters Club books that I have or the Frog & Toad chapter books.  I thought maybe if there was a "princess" one she would want to hear it.

I like to do the theme of the letter or number we are learning for the week, but she's bored with those.  She's reading some on her own too (the short level 1 books).  I've tried doing the season too.....so right now its turning into fall, so I'm trying to do pumpkins and other "fall" readings.  

She just gets on these themes and won't get off of them for a while.  She went thru the Pinkalicious phase, the Llama Llama phase, the "If you give a mouse/moose/cat/etc...." phase, and now its "Princess"

How about a classic: The little princess, or the secret garden.  Neither are really princesses, but both are chapter books and girly.  I used to love them when I was little.

fancy nancy series, not sure of authors name off hand but she has everything from the hard cover big books, paperbacks for parent's to read & then the learning to read step 1,2 and so on depending on child's age/reading level. -- same with pinkalicious, barbie, lalaloopsy & disney princess. Angelina Ballerina, Olivia, bernstein bears, arthur -- we find most at the local library.
