Nomination: Here Come the Girl Scouts!

Corey, Shana.  Here Come the Girl Scouts!: The Amazing All-true Story of Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low and Her Great Adventure.  Illus. by Hadley Hooper.  2012.  40 p.  Scholastic Press, $17.99 (978-0-545-34278-0).  PreK-Gr.3. [kpr]

“Whatever you take up, do it with all of your might.”  Quotes like this, taken from the first Girl Scout handbook, are sprinkled throughout Low’s biography.  They convey the power and sense of purpose the Girl Scouts fostered in young women at time when they weren’t expected to play sports or camp.
