My niece will soon be giving birth to a daughter. My mother is looking for children's books that tell stories about mothers and daughters, but so far she hasn't found any. She is finding a LOT of books about "daddy's little girl," and her favorite--Love You Forever--is about a mother and son.

So, can anyone out there point me in the direction of mother/daughter children's books? I know nothing about kid's books except for the ones I read as a child. I looked at Jamie Lee Curtis's books, but they don't seem to fit, and I'm looking right now at Julie Andrews's books (at least they're about girls), but I'm not sure if there are mother/daughter relationships in them. See? I only know about kid's books written by celebrities.

And you know, if there are no mother/daughter children's books, why not?

Thanks for any help you can give me!

I had sons, so I can't help you there, sorry. It's a lovely idea for a gift, though!

It's bothering the feminist in me that we haven't been able to find any nice children's books about a mother/daughter relationship. It seems to be saying that only boys are interesting enough to write books about, and that girls are only interesting if they are "daddy's little girl."

I may have to rant about this at some point, but for now I'm going to keep looking.
