The Daring Book for Girls is the manual for everything that girls need to know—and that doesn't mean sewing buttonholes! Whether it's female heroes in history, secret note-passing skills, science projects, friendship bracelets, double dutch, cats cradle, the perfect cartwheel or the eternal mystery of what boys are thinking, this book has it all. But it's not just a guide to giggling at sleepovers—although that's included, of course! Whether readers consider themselves tomboys, girly-girls, or a little bit of both, this book is every girl's invitation to adventure.

In itself this book is okay but I like the boy's one more.This series is extremely sexist and where are the books for non-binary kids?

WARNING!!!! This book is not what it appears. If you are uncomfortable with your daughter learning how to cast spells, summon demons, read palms and practice levitation then DO NOT book this book! This is the third book in the series but is not true to the first two, it is indeed a bait and switch!!!
