Over the past few weeks my eldest son earned his Cub Scout Arrow of Light and began Boy Scouts. He has been at it for a few years and really enjoys all the activities that scouting offers. My younger son is also in scouts. Like most kids his favorite events are camping and pinewood derby. All this scouting got me to thinking about a book I recently read on the formation of the Girl Scouts.
Shana Corey, who was also born in Savannah, shows an obvious kinship to Daisy in the exuberance for which she tells this great tale. Hadley Cooper, who was also a Girl Scout, has fun with the fresh and energetic illustrations. Both author and illustrator show some of Daisy’s favorite traits – gumption, spunk and wit. The last spread in the book is a more in depth look at Juliette Gordon Low and the Girl Scouts that adults will find very intriguing. Girls, even those who are not scouts, will find a lot to enjoy about “Here Come the Girl Scouts!”
