First Girl Scout: The Life of Juliette Gordon Low by Ginger Wadsworth -ADVISABLE

Wadsworth, Ginger First Girl Scout: The Life of Juliette Gordon Low  224 pgs. Clarion Books, 2012. $12.23.  (Rating: Language: G, Violence: G, Sexual Content: G)
A detailed biography of Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Law, the founder of the Girl Scouts. The book goes through every little thing from her childhood, her family, her education, and her marriage. It follows how she became interested and involved with helping girls to become a part of the something special –an education in the great outdoors, homemaking, and even careers.
This is was an incredibly detailed and long biography. I don’t think it’s quite right for elementary students because of this, it’s just too much to wade through (Also because it goes into the concept of extramarital affairs). But older students will find it an interesting read, with tons of pictures and historical detail, that is never dry or boring.
