To­day co-an­chor and mom Sa­van­nah Guthrie co-wrote Princesses Wear Pants (Abrams, $18), avail­able Sept. 12, with Al­li­son Op­pen­heim to show their daugh­ters that girls can be sparkly and still get the job done. Here are more chil­dren’s books she loves to read to her own kids, daugh­ter Vale, 3, and son Charles, 9 months. Rosie Re­vere, Engi­neer by An­drea Beaty (Abrams), $18 “This is a quirky lit­tle story about giv­ing kids a vi­sion for suc­ceed­ing in those ar­eas, like sci­ence, that we don’t fo­cus on enough.” The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Day­walt (Philomel Books), $18 “This book is a lit­tle old for my lit­tle girl, Vale, but I read books to her whether they’re suit­able for her age or not. I love this one: It’s so clever and sassy and re­ally fun.” River Rose and the Mag­i­cal Lul­laby by Kelly Clark­son (HarperCollins), $19 “A re­ally sweet bed­time story about a lit­tle girl who goes on an ad­ven­ture. I’m a huge Kelly Clark­son fan, and I love it be­cause there’s a lul­laby you can down­load. [Vale and I] put our own melody to it and we sing and read it to­gether all the time.”
