AbstractHistoryArchive Description

"The daring book for girls is the manual for everything that girls need to know -- and that doesn't mean sewing buttonholes! Whether its female heroes in history, secret note-passing skills, science projects, friendship bracelets, double dutch, cats cradle, the perfect cartwheel or the eternal mystery of what boys are thinking, this book has it all. But it's not just a guide to giggling at sleepovers -- although that is included, of course! Whether readers consider themselves tomboys, girly-girls, or a little bit of both, this book is every girl's invitation to adventure."--Provided by publisher.

Notes

  • The Daring Book for Girls published by HarperCollins attracted criticism from indigenous commentators over a chapter which teaches girls how to play the didgeridoo.
