The Daring Book for Girlsby Andrea J. Buchanan and Miriam Peskowitz
These volumes, The Dangerous Book for Boys and The Daring Book for Girls, are utterly brimming with tips, tools, maps, pictograms, glossaries, advice, game rules, blueprints... you name it! They're fantastic guidebooks for kids. And, truth be told, I learned a lot, too.
Synopses & Reviews
The Daring Book for Girls is the manual for everything that girls need to know — and that doesn't mean sewing buttonholes! Whether it's female heroes in history, secret note-passing skills, science projects, friendship bracelets, double dutch, cats cradle, the perfect cartwheel or the eternal mystery of what boys are thinking, this book has it all. But it's not just a guide to giggling at sleepovers — although that's included, of course! Whether readers consider themselves tomboys, girly-girls, or a little bit of both, this book is every girl's invitation to adventure.
The manual for everything that adventurous girls need to know: from female heroes in history to secret note-passing skills, science projects to friendship bracelets, the perfect cartwheel to the eternal mystery of what boys are thinking.
