did not like it

This book is more for parents who wish to take a trip down memory lane, back to the fun times in their childhood. But give it to a girl older than eight, it's going to be a huge disappointment. Not to mention slightly insulting.

Tag? Four Square? Double Dutch? Putting my hair up with a pencil? Snowballs? Really? That's daring? All these things have been done and is old news by the age of eight, at the most. The book sticks to much to the stereotypes for girls and talks down slightly to the reader.

I think this book is more appropriate for girls in first to third grade. Past that, don't waste your time.

Kristi I disagree! I got this book when I was fifteen and I LOVED it! It let me break away from the norm and make my own adventures and well as learn the history of others. I'm sorry if someone you knew might have gotten this book and felt insulted but I can assure you not everyone was! :)
