The Pocket Daring Book for Girls

Posted by Miriam on May 3rd, 2008

Hot off the presses and available in bookstores the week of May 5th: The Pocket Daring Book for Girls: Things to Do, available wherever books are sold. The pocket book is small enough to toss in your backpack, and we’ve included many of our favorite chapters from “the big book” along with some topics we were excited about over the winter and wanted to write about, including:

* How to Run Faster
* How to Track Animals
* How to Make a Homemade Geyser
* How to Make a Skirt from a Pillowcase (a great rainy-day activity)
* How to Skateboard, including step-by-step directions for doing an ollie (that’s when you jump and lift the skateboard into the air), with illustrations, too!
* Several more, including the chapter banned from the original Daring Book for Girls–How to Make a Zipline in Your Backyard!
