Juliette Gordon Low



"Ask the girls," Juliette Gordon Low always said when a problem came up. "They'll know what's best."

But in 1912, no one thought that children should be listened to. No one except "Daisy," that is. She wanted girls to learn that they could be active and make a real difference in the world. She overcame both deafness and the disapproval of her family to establish the Girl Scouts. Now, more than four million girls are Girl Scouts in the United States alone.

Praise for Juliette Gordon Low

Most of what is known about Low is standard fare gleaned from Girl Scout handbooks and reference books. Yet, as this sprightly biography shows, she was a genuine character: colorful, with a great zest for living. Strong of character and used to having her own way, she had a sharp wit and loved to play pranks on her family and friends. The essence of brief biography, this is cozy, full of homey tidbits, and just right in appeal to today's children.
