Want gifts for 9-year old girls that they will love? How about one of these books, art ideas, dolls, or games?

I LOVE this age for gift giving because 9 year old girls are still playing with toys and also doing crafts while also being able to do more complex science experiments, reading harder books, and thinking more abstractly.

Have fun shopping for the girls in your life.
