Editorial 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.

Summary: this book is for young girls and grown women!
Comment: I LOVE THIS BOOK!! It reminds me so much of my childhood. I bought it for myself, but had a wonderful time sharing it with my Nanny (my grandmother.) Although I'm pretty yound and my Nanny is pretty old, we both had fun reading through this book and remembering the things we did when we were little! This is a great book for a mother and daughter or a grandmother and granddaughter to share, and will be charrished for years and years!

Summary: Just What I Always Wanted
Comment: I was buying the "Dangerous Book for Boys" for my husband's nephew when I saw this book. I ended up buying "The Daring Book for Girls" for me, and two copies of the boy book - one for my husband's nephew (aged 9) and one for him. I love this book so much I recommend it to everyone, and I'm buying a copy for sister for her 12th birthday next month. It has loads of fun information on real life princesses, how to power a clock with a lemon, how to tie knots, etc. Very useful and entertaining.

Summary: Must Read Book for all Girls
Comment: "The Daring Book for Girls" by Andrea J Buchanan and Miriam Peskowitz is just amazing. Girls just don't chit chat or play with dolls. Girls can perform many intelligent, creative and skillful activities like padding a canoe or changing a tire. This book was recommended by my friend. She has given it to her young daughter. This book does not ignore girly behavior like girls reading about queens or making friendship bracelets or pressing flowers. It also embodies functions like playing basketball, being a spy, and hiking. This book is multicultural as it talks about how to wear a sari (mainly women in India wear a sari), explore Africa, learning French and Spanish words. I liked how the book talks about famous historical figures who were women like Joan of Arc and their brave deeds and the women who served in war. The book appreciates a girl for her dainty qualities and need to keep her pretty, as it demonstrates how to tie up your hair with a pencil or make daisy chains. But it also requests girls to be brave and learn to defend themselves by learning yoga and karate and making their own tool kit. The topics are so diverse. They tap on the all round development of the girl. One finds activities that encourage inventiveness and creativeness like writing letters or math tricks or using impressive words; and it also talks about how to make a willow whistle, building a campfire, riding a scooter, using cart wheels and making an airplane. The book teaches girls basic activities that will help her when she grows like how to negotiate a salary or how to speak in public. I think the girl can do twice as many activities as a boy can do as she can play outdoors and do housework at home. I just find this book to be so innovative and not at all prejudiced. It's got activities that would enhance the all-round development of the girl to be sensible and independent and enjoy life. This book also explains in details and simple language the history or meaning of terms and the procedures. It motivates the girls to not give up and keep trying. I would recommend this light hearted and fun book to all girls.

Summary: Daring Book for Girls
Comment: This book is in great condition. The information included is wonderful.
It shows how to do many things that girls will find intersting. I purchased it for my 11 year old grand-daughter and will buy one for a younger grand-daughter in a few years when she is old enough to appreciate it. Included are games long forgotten and many"how tos". I plan to read through it and remember.
