From the Publisher:

The Daring Book for Girls is the manual for everything that girls need to know—and that doesn't mean sewing buttonholes! Whether it's female heroes in history, secret note-passing skills, science projects, friendship bracelets, double dutch, cats cradle, the perfect cartwheel or the eternal mystery of what boys are thinking, this book has it all. But it's not just a guide to giggling at sleepovers—although that's included, of course! Whether readers consider themselves tomboys, girly-girls, or a little bit of both, this book is every girl's invitation to adventure.

Andrea Buchanan is the mother of a daughter and a son, both of whom are equally daring. Before she was a writer, she was a pianist who once performed a solo concert at Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall. This is her fifth book.
Miriam Peskowitz is the mother of two girls, including an eight-year-old who climbs trees and leads spy missions in the backyard. She has been a camp counselor, an historian, a blogger, a musician, a professor, and is the author of several books, including The Truth Behind the Mommy Wars.

Para toda chica con espíritu independiente que busca travesuras, aquí está la única guía de aventura donde no se permiten chicos.
El libro aventurado para las chicas es el manual para todo lo que una chica necesita saber, ¡y eso no significa sólo coser y cocinar! Este libro lo tiene todo, tanto los cuentos sobre las heroinas de la historia, como maneras de pasarse notas secretas, proyectos científicos, brazaletes de amistad, saltar la cuerda y el misterio eterno sobre lo que piensan los chicos.

¡Y no es sólo una guía para compartir a risas en una fiesta de pijama! Es para toda ocasión y toda chica, sea súper afeminada o retozona; este libro las invita a todas a disfrutar de esta gran aventura.
