Reviews - What do customers think about The Daring Book for Girls?

My daughter is completely nuts for this book!  Mar 17, 2010
My daughter saw this in the bookstore, and stated that she "reeeeaaaallllly" wanted it. She's a voracious reader, and just turned 8, so I kind of thought it would perfect. And it is! She reads it all the time, and refers to it just as much. She's learning, but in a fun way that she controls. All the stuff inside is pretty neat, and she frequently tells me things I don't know, all courtesy of the book. Her birthday was actually just a week ago, and this is so far and beyond her favorite possession, I actually had a cake decorator make her a cake that looked like the book, but instead of "The Daring Book for Girls", it said, "The Daring Cake for Gracie". She loved it!
Insult to Girls Everywhere!  Feb 2, 2010
I can only say how tremendously disappointed I was by this book! My son adores the Dangerous Book for Boys and I had high hopes that this book might rival it for my daughter. If one's only hopes for "daring" must entail tangling with the occult, it is a sad day for young girls everywhere! The book encourages girls to read tarot, play "Bloody Mary", and venture into other avenues of the occult. Somehow they managed to intersperse a few bits of fun with the objectionable material - we clipped out the section on hand jives before ripping off the cover and recycling the book. So disappointing!
Very fun  Jan 24, 2010
I have been listening to this while at various airports around the country and I think it's very fun. Great to listen to and I think it'd be very empowering for the younger generation.

Very interesting  Jan 22, 2010
I bought this book for my 9 year old daughter. As soon as I opened the box the cover caught her eye. After dinner she curled up in a chair and was flipping pages. I asked if there was anything interesting in there - "I guess so" was the reply. 2 hours later, she tucked it into her book bag so she could read it at school. I'm a dad and we often do crafts and outdoor projects like tire swings, and tree house. We now have several new things to try.
I even learned a few things when I managed to get the book away from her.
Fun reading - recommended.
Great book!  Jan 10, 2010
This book is great! Shows lots of things for girls with some words of encouragement. The only part that may cause some concern with parents is the Slumber Party Games. They show "Light As A Feather, Stiff As A Board" and "Ouija Board". Some parents might object to this but other than that, all is good!!
