With two very active daughters, our family is the perfect candidate to check out The Double-Daring Book for Girls by Andrea J. Buchanan & Miriam Peskowitz.
The eagerly anticipated follow-up to the bestselling phenomenon The Daring Book for Girls is an even more daring guide to everything from making a raft to learning how to play football to the art of the Japanese Tea ceremony. This second volume, with all new original material, promises to be even more of a daring adventure than the first. Girls will learn how to surf, get horseback riding tips, make a labyrinth, find out about April Fool’s Day history and pranks, how to organize a croquet tournament, find out about cowgirls, the Nobel Prize, being a detective and much more! Just as packed with creative and exciting material as the original, but twice as fun, this book will be beloved by all Daring fans everywhere!
Wow! This book was such a wealth of infomation that I don’t even know where to start. What I can say is that I love that this book stays away from all the traditional “girly” activities and focuses on the main point - girls can do anything boys can do like building Rock Towers, Conduct an Orchestra, Catch Fish, Become President of the United States, Surfing, and on and on and on.
This book not only has “how to” topics but it also discusses educational areas like measurements, different languages, having courage as well as women in history who have made a name for themselves in the not-so-typical female professions.
Overall, what I liked best about this book is the wide variety of activities, information, and useful ideas that any family could use. In fact, going through this book with my girls I also learned at lot. For example, I have never heard of Worry Dolls that you make yourself. When your child goes to sleep, she tells it all her troubles to these doll and then places them under her pillow. This book shows girls that there are no limits to what they can do and achieve. It sends such a positive message to any young girl and lets her know that the sky is the limit.
