You know I’m a HUGE fan of the Daring Book for Boys but now there is a hers version… The Daring Book for Girls by Andrea J. Buchanan and Miriam Peskowitz have created a wonderful resource for your Daring Darlings!!!
Girls young and old will love this book! From Japanese T-Shirt Folding to Greek and Latin Root Words. I love that girls are well versed in home care, languages, writing and so much more! For years I’ve created a Kid Binder, full of the article clipplings, lists, words to know but this book has so much stuff I missed.
This book gives me hope that I will teach my daughter all those little things that my mother who worked full time my entire childhood dind’t have time for or even know about.
There are even fourteen different versions of TAG, can you imagine! unbelievable but true there are that many and these wonderful ladies dug them up for your daring girl to delight in.
This book has been girl2004’s constant companion and we’ve learned ALL the words to the Handclap Games! Of course the hand movements are still a little hard for both of us but it’s a work in progress!
Our next project is to get the materials for the FLAT Scooter times 3, all three of the kids have expressed an interest in this. Boy2001 has volunteered to lend his toolbox so we are in business.
