Hi everyone,

I’m in the midst of buying some books and DVDs for the daughters of a family friend. I’ve found some books, but I’m coming up short on ideas for TV shows (and movies). Do you have any recommendations for TV shows for girls ages 5, 9, and 13?

I want to get them to experience shows from different decades across different genres that are friendly to young girls and have female leads. I was thinking along the lines of shows like Madeline, Babysitters Club, and maybe Lizzie McGuire. Any recommendations would be great. Thanks in advance!
