Another great book! My granddaughter will love this!
The Double Daring Book for Girls, begins right where the first book left off. It is a non-fiction book for girls, packed full of anything and everything you might want to know, from constellations to Calamity Jane. Once again I found myself reliving my childhood as I read about slumber party games or how to use a hula-hoop.

One of my favorite sections was "How to Run Away and Join the Circus" (p. 121-123). It gave tips on everything from walking the high wire to plate spinning. My personal favori
I thought this was a very entertaining story, and girls can learn a great deal of lessons from it. I like how they talked about alot of things that girls can be afraid of when they are younger, and then as they get older, its no longer a worry to them. I think with girls that go through struggles alot in their lives would benefit from reading this book, and find it helpful to guide them through tough times, and happy times. I think younger kids, at the age of 8 and older would fully understand t ...more
had a rather difficult time trying to review this book, not because the book is anything but wonderful and amazing. No, I had to wrestle The Double Daring Book for Girls away from my daughter, ThePrincess. ThePrincess is a big fan of this book and has discussed at great length which activities she is going to attempt this summer and which ones she is going to use when baby sitting to keep the kids occupied & out of trouble.

If you are going to be stuck at home with children this summer I high
Had a blast reading this with B. Recommend reading this with your daughters. Great book for empowering girls - filled with history, projects and educational references.

Recommends it for: everyone
Have you ever wanted to know how to do something, but never stopped to look it up?

This book gives great insights into life skills that every girl (and boy, for that matter!) should know -- as well as fun things like how to fold origami, how to make a raft, and how to play bocce. Certainly not all of these things are survival skills, but they may make life a little more interesting as you go.
Another great dare book in the series. This series would be a great gift for all the girls on your list.

A good mix of fun and interesting things to do, inter-spaced with a few history lessons on famous women. A few more pictures would be useful (i.e. examples of batik) and the artwork seems little dated (reminds me of seventies school books) A good book for children whose guardians don't have time to teach them these things themselves, or have other children around to learn from.
I love this book!! I read this book off and on when I'm bored and it is really cool and makes me want to experiment. I got it for my birthday and always read it. Girls SHOULD DEFIANTLY READ THIS!!!!!
I only read the sections that I thought would be interesting, otherwise it would have taken me wayyyyyyy longer to read this book.
Another fun compilations of things that growing girls can do, learn about, and make. Perfect for those "I'm bored" days of summer.
I liked this one even better than the first one. I plan to give it as a gift to several of my friends with young daughters.
Guess what just came out? A very cool book for girls that has instructions for how to play Cricket. I bought a copy!!

I liked it a lot. it was like The Daring Book For Girls-AWESOME!
