The Double-Daring Book for Girls: more daring fun and inspiration

I just got a note from author Andi Buchanan announcing the arrival The Double-Daring Book for Girls -- follow-up volume to the wildly successful Daring Book for Girls (which itself was inspired by the Dangerous Book for Boys).

I'm thrilled. These books contain enough how-to and inspiration to keep kids going all summer.

I'm going to try to get my hands on a review copy (and hopefully more for a giveaway). More soon!

What a great book to review?

Can I ask how you got such a great opportunity?

I'd love to get my hands on this book for my girl (and myself as well!!)


It would be nice, however, if we could have a dangerous book for kids instead of separating them out by gender. My daughter likes ballet and trucks, football and dress-up dolls.

I came to say what Nathan said. Thanks for saying it first and using about 100 fewer words than I would have. :) I agree completely.

Nathan and Kathy--you're in luck: the Double-Daring Book for Girls has a chapter on Football, including how to throw and catch. It also has chapters on cowgirls, dancers, scientists, how to hula hoop, how to make electric games, and how to go fishing (including cleaning the fish after) and how to go camping.

Anyone who wants our daughters to grow up feeling like the world is a big place, and that every option is open and skill is open to our daughters will feel at home with our new book.
