The First Girl Scout: The Life of Juliette Gordon Low




by Ginger Wadsworth
Clarion Books, 2012. 210pgs. Nonfiction

Juliette Gordon Low was not your typical girl in the late 1800’s. She liked excitement and out of doors adventures which was frowned upon by those of her time. She didn’t let that stop her though.  Juliette lived through the civil war, traveled the world as an adult, and was even presented in court at Buckingham Palace.  But her greatest adventure began later in life, when she first heard of a popular British improvement group called the Girl Guides.  Juliette made it her life’s work to bring this movement to the United States. Under her driving influence it soon evolved into the Girl Scout program which took the whole nation by storm. If you’re looking for a great book for a biography report or just want to learn more about this amazing woman’s history—then this is the book for you.
