The Double-Daring Book for Girls
This follow-up to The Daring Book for Girls is better than the first installment. Of course notable women are covered, but the book shines for its unique and varied “how to” sections: like how to run away and join the circus, conduct a Japanese tea ceremony, or start a mother-daughter book club. Instructions for more prosaic activities like playing the harmonica, tossing horseshoes, and stargazing are also included. Age 8 and up.
