Here Come the Girl Scouts by Shana Corey

In honor of the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts, Shana Corey introduces us to its founder, Juliette Gordon Low. She had gumption!

What I thought: This book made me want to join the Girls Scouts even though I'm much too old. I've always been fascinated by the organization. It was nice to learn more. When I was 14, I visited the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace. This book made that past experience even more real for me. Hadley Hooper's illustrations are lovely. The colors are great and I love the bold black lines. If I ever have a daughter, I want her to be a Girl Scout.
