Same problem, new book. When the Double-Daring Book for Girls showed up on my doorstep about four weeks ago, I intended to do the review within a week or so. I made a note on my task list and set it on the corner of my desk with a couple of other books I also intended to review. Two hours later, in burst my kids from school and before I can say “don’t touch that,” my oldest daughter has the book in hand and is flipping through the pages. It was last seen with her head buried somewhere in the middle of it as she wandered out of my office mumbling “ooh – astronomy!” Later that evening, there was much begging and pleading from her to take it with us as we traveled to a school event. I relented, but made sure the book came back home to my desk.
A couple of days went by and the book went missing again. And so began the endless cycle of wanting to do the review but I can’t find the book. I finally wrestled it away from my girls again this weekend and I’m determined to get this review in while I still have possession of it!
If you recall my review of the first book the Daring Book for Girls, you will notice I had the same problem. Bottom line – my girls LOVE these books! The Double-Daring Book for Girls by Andrea J. Buchanan and Miriam Peskowitz is just as intriguing as the first one and loaded with just as much great information, tips and instructions for girls of all ages. I’ve made note of a few sections I want to go back and study a little more in-depth. For example…Lacrosse – I’ve had a few requests to make a Lacrosse player but I know nothing about the game. The Double-Daring Book for Girls has that covered. Along with:
This second daring Book is also full of short biographies and tidbits from women’s history. This is a valuable learning tool for any girl and the book quality is top-notch. It’s a no-brainer gift idea for any girl. For more information and to read samples like How To Whistle Through a Blade of Grass, see the interactive Daring Book for Girls website. You won’t be disappointed! In fact, I recommend getting a copy now and presenting to your child before summer hits. My girls are busy making their summer plans already and many of them include ideas and projects they picked up from these books. Maybe they will let me in on their fun, too!
