Here Come the Girl Scouts!

Here Come the Girl Scouts!

by Shana Corey Illustrated by Hadley Hooper
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!
