America’s First Girl Scout


I read Juliette Gordon Low by Kathleen V. Kudlinski and learned a few new fun facts that I  didn’t know about her. One of those cool facts is that she started the Girls Scouts after a meeting with Sir Robert Baden Powell, who is the founder of the Boy Scouts. After that meeting she realized she didn’t just want to be a lady. She wanted to be more than that and make a difference in the world, so she created the Girl Scouts.

If you are between the ages of seven to twelve then this is a good book for you. This is a very short book so it easily can be read in one to two nights. At the beginning it was a little flat for me but it got more and more interesting through the book. The end was by far the best part of the book. I’m a Girl Scout so I already know a lot about Juliette Gordon Low. So, this book was boring for me. But if you’re not a Girl Scout or you are a new one then this is a good book for you.

Another cool fact about Juliette Gordon Low that I learned from this book is that her nickname was Daisy. Even though her real name was Juliette no one called her that. All anyone really called her was Daisy! Her uncle gave her the nickname when when she was born. This is neat because when you first start as a Girl Scout, you are a Daisy! If you like history and enjoy learning cool facts about the Girl Scouts then this is a good book for you.
