I assume that she is following you rather than trying to place gear. If that's true, I would try:

Betty 5.3 (both pitches)
Easy Overhang 5.2 (both pitches), but, Pitch 2 is very very exposed
Bunny (with 5.6 or without 5.4 the roof)
No Picnic (5.4) (Small roof)
Jackie 5.5
Belly Roll 5.4 (both pitches)
Dennis 5.4 (both pitches)
Rhododendon 5.6
Frog's head 5.6 (both pitches, nice ledge for the belay for P2)
Ken's 5.7
Laurel 5.7
Horseman 5.5 (do it two pitches), if she is comfortable belaying from a hanging belay, other wise do it one
Harvard 5.3 (fun, it ducks up behind a big rock)
Baby 5.6, fun offwidth that will keep her attention. I suspect she will be small enough to practically get inside! P2 is fun as well.
If she is looking for something harder, but a ton of fun, you can do Easy Overhang set up as a TR, with a 70M rope. Slabby climbing leads to fun juggy, steep corner near the top.

If she is really into and and is liking the exposure and you think she is ready, she might like High Exposure. P2 is the money pitch and it has a very exposed move out on to the face. Easy gym like climbing leads to the top.
