“Daisy was a girl with gumption.” She grew up into a woman who pursued every interest she had with passion, and lived life with a sense of joy. She also grew up into the woman who would found the Girl Scouts. Shana Corey’s vivacious picture book look at Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low and the early years of the Girl Scouts is paired with spirited illustrations by Hadley Hooper incorporating quotes from the first Girl Scout handbook. More information about Daisy and the Girl Scouts is provided in an essay at story’s end that discusses some of the essential ideas that shaped Daisy’s thinking and the Girl Scouts, from the progressive era and conservation to diversity. Detailed source information is also included. (Ages 6–9)
