The manual for everything that girls need to know--from female heroes in history, secret note-passing skills, science projects, to the eternal mystery of what boys are thinking--this book has it all.
Gr 3 Up-This female companion to The Dangerous Book for Boys introduces girls to a world where they, too, can be adventurous. The activities, many of which will need adult supervision, range from the simple to the complex, and the information covers things to make, sports to know, biographies of interesting famous women like Mata Hari and Cleopatra, and many other facts that may captivate girls. Readers will learn how to whistle with two fingers, build a tree house, read palms, and change a tire. There are also directions for becoming a spy, changing a tire; pressing flowers; making paper, and putting on a sari. The volume includes facts about history, from the ancient world to the 20th century, science, and geography; all of which are illustrated with ink drawings." An extensive bibliography suggests other titles that girls might enjoy. Highly recommended for public libraries and middle schools, this is a must for all libraries catering for Hispanics.-Veronica Covington, Univ. of Texas, Austin (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
