My daughter has started reading with a passion and we always try to get her books that have girls doing LOTS of different things. She has her Disney princess books, but we balance that with Princess in Black, Interstellar Cinderella, and Nella the Princess Knight. Wonderfully, they're among her favorites so it all works out!

Additionally, now that she has started reading on her own (wow, the kiddo's half way through first grade now) and we've been getting early reader books. We stumbled onto a series called "You Should Meet" and have so far collected Katherine Johnson, The Women Who Launched Computer Age, and just this month, Mae Jemison!

These books are for the 6-8 year old range. They really give a decent amount of detail about the lives and work of the people they're featuring! My  daughter is fascinated with them and they have quickly become her favorite books. We've started buying more of them just so we can have some variety each night at story time. This month with the book focusing on Mae Jemison, we were even able to pull up the Star Trek: TNG episode where she makes a cameo (s6,e24 - riker transporter twin episode)!
