This book is about the creation of the girl scouts and how Juliette Low paved the way for young girls to find their purpose. This would be a great book to use for teaching a class about finding what they love, and how to achieve goals that they may want to meet. It also gives girls the opportunity to learn about a program that is still going today, and how it came to be. For all of these reasons and because I think this would be great to share in class, I gave this book 4 1/2 stars. ( )

This is the story about the woman who started the girl scouts. It is a beautiful story with amazing pictures, and well put together illustrations. I would like to use this book for students to inspire them to do great things. ( )

This book is about Juliette "Daisy" Gordon Low and how she was an adventurous little girl when she was meant to be proper. She traveled to England where she discovered the Boy Scouts and a sister group the Girl Guides. She brought this back to America and created the Girl Scouts, which is now a recognized organization all over. This book would be great to use when learning about the history of an organization in the classroom, community, and nation wide. ( )

Daisy was always looking for an adventure during a time when girls were supposed to be dainty and proper. She traveled the world and loved being in nature. When she learned about the Boy Scouts in England and their sister group the Girl Guides, she decided she wanted to do the same thing for the girls back home. She dedicated her life to inspiring young women across the country. Since the Girl Scouts are an organization that most everyone recognizes this book would be a great tool to use when learning the history of the organization. ( )

This picture book biography of Juliette (aka "Daisy") Gordon Low portrays the spirited, determined woman in her quest to do something adventurous and impactful on the world. Ultimately, she is inspired by what she sees in England and ends up creating the Girl Scouts of America. The book wraps up with a celebration of some past Girl Scouts who have made a difference (including Hillary Clinton, Rita Dove, and Gloria Steinem) and finally with some extra historical notes. Overall, the book is informative and inspirational, which I can only presume were its goals. The illustrations fit the text nicely, although I must admit that I personally found the interspersed quotes from Low distracting, even though they were meaningful and eloquent. I'm not sure what would have been a better way to add those in, but I believe this wasn't it. However, that was a small quibble in an otherwise excellent book. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0545342783, Hardcover)

The amazing, all-true story of the first Girl Scouts and their visionary founder.

Juliette Gordon Low--Daisy to her friends and family--was not like most girls of the Victorian era.

Prim and proper?

BOSH!

Dainty and delicate?

HOW BORING!

She loved the outdoors, and she yearned for adventure! Born into a family of pathfinders and pioneers, she too wanted to make a difference in the world--and nothing would stop her.

Combining her ancestors’ passion for service with her own adventurous spirit and her belief that girls could do anything, she founded the Girl Scouts. One hundred years later, they continue to have adventures, do good deeds, and make a difference!

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:18:58 -0400)

A one hundreth anniversary tribute to the Girl Scouts founder describes how she rejected the conventions of Victorian culture and introduced her pioneer family's passion for service, adventure, and independence to the girls of her time.
