Here Come the Girl Scouts! by Shana Corey
Juliette Gordon Low, or “Daisy” as her friends and family called her, was born during a time when girls were supposed to be dainty and delicate.Daisy wanted more.She wanted adventure and excitement.Daisy discovered a group in England for boys called the Boy Scouts.This group spent a lot of time outside doing the very things Daisy enjoyed.Daisy was especially excited to learn there was a sister group called the Girl Guides.Daisy soon began making plans for her own version of the Girl Guides, known as the Girl Scouts, in Savannah.Daisy spent much of her time traveling around the country giving speeches and raising money for Girl Scouts, and before long Girl Scout troops could be found throughout the country, as they still are today. Great informational biography about a woman that has impacted the lives of many girls throughout the country. A great length for introducing biographies to younger students.
