Scouting out a Progressive Role Model: Here Come the Girl Scouts!
Social Studies and the Young Learner, v26 n3 p19-21 Jan-Feb 2014
Shana Corey's picture book, "Here Come the Girl Scouts!: The Amazing All-True Story of Juliette 'Daisy' Gordon Low and Her Great Adventure" describes Low's life as one of excitement, boldness, and fun. The "birthday" of Girl Scouts falls conveniently near the middle of Women's History Month, on March 12, and is a good fit in a study of significant women. Juliette Low might not typically come up in a social studies lesson for young children, but she is worthy of study for her special contributions to the lives of women and girls.
