Dare to be a girl!

By now, you've probably heard of The Dangerous Book for Boys. In essence, it's an encyclopedia of boyhood and hit the New York Times bestseller list with such a vengeance that now Disney wants to make it into a movie. (Though, I'm admittedly puzzled what it would be about.)

Anyway, lest women began to feel unloved, Andrea J. Buchanan and Miriam Peskowitz decided to pen a complementary book called The Daring Book for Girls, all about things every girl should know - like how to put your hair up with a pen or a how to negotiate a salary.

OK, so it's not deep stuff. It's a coffee table book, people. This isn't a book that will change your girls' lives, but it will most certainly give them an added boost of confidence, along with a little girl pride. Or, if all else fails, it will entertain them.

I dig this book. It's a fun flip-read, which means you can open it up to any page and get a quick kick out of its contents. It's the kind of book I'll keep out for years and still never have read in chronological order. And I bet it's going to come in handy when I least expect - like when Miss Dub needs to know how to read a tide chart.

If you have girls, you should get this book. It celebrates being a true girl - not a ditsy sexpot, but a girl who loves to build forts and have slumber parties.

Thanks PBN for the fun read. Now, what about a Daring Book for Mothers? 'Cause I'm still wondering what's the best way to tie a shoelace.
