9780147515667: Juliette Gordon Low: America's First Girl Scout (Women of Our Time)

"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.

Book Description Puffin. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 80 pages. Forget that I am deaf and blind and think of me as an ordinary woman, wrote Helen Kellerbut she was anything but ordinary. When Helen was growing up, there were no facilities to help handicapped students. Still, she learned to speak, read, and write, attended Radcliffe College, wrote five books, and lectured all over the world. It wasnt enough to prove that she could do anything. Helen wanted other handicapped people to know that they could, too. And Helen achieved her purpose: the world saw a real woman behind the handicaps, and an extraordinary human being behind the legend. This item ships from multiple locations.
