Here Come the Girl Scouts! The Amazing, All-True Story of Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low and Her Great Adventure

Shana Corey
Scholastic / 2012

Happy 100th birthday, Girl Scouts! Juliette Gordon Low—Daisy to her friends and family—was not like most girls of the Victorian era. Prim and proper? BOSH! Dainty and delicate? HOW BORING! She loved the outdoors, and she yearned for adventure! Born into a family of pathfinders and pioneers, she too wanted to make a difference in the world. Combining her ancestors’ passion for service with her own adventurous spirit and her belief that girls could do anything, she founded the Girl Scouts—an organization that was both GREEN and GIRL POWER, decades before either term was introduced! One hundred years later, the Girl Scouts continue to have adventures, do good deeds, and make a difference.
