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!

Babysitters Club

I don't know if there's an older version, but the one on Netflix is pushing child transition. That would be one to avoid.

I haven’t watched the new one but the show from 1990 was pretty good. There wasn’t an virtue signaling but showed important topics in a way that wasn’t pandering or over the top. The BSC movie from ‘95 was a mess and I heard that the episode with the TIM from the new show spoiled the series for a lot of people so that’s a definite skip
