THE DARING BOOK FOR GIRLS

by | Read by Ilyana Kadushin

Young Adult Young Adult • 4 hrs. • Abridged • © 2007

This delightful potpourri for "'tween" girls offers a variety of topics. There are lessons on games of tag, hopscotch, slumber parties, making stink bombs, performing CPR, and changing a tire. Lively role models abound. In particular, the authors cite Jo March from LITTLE WOMEN, who said she could never be friends with a girl who didn't climb trees or jump fences. Other influential women who are discussed include Joan of Arc, Salome, Cleopatra, Amelia Earhart, Abigail Adams, Florence Nightingale, as well as Civil War and Revolutionary spies. Ilyana Kadushin shows her versatility with a lively delivery that is frequently characterized by a "big sister" tone. M.T.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2008]
