The Adventurous Girl's Handbook Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors!

We are on another adventure! We are taking a quick trip to Florida. So, what better time to introduce you to The Adventurous Girl’s Handbook ($12.95) by Stephen Brennan and Lara Brennan. It is published by Skyhorse Publishing. Yes, there are some things in the book that my daughters will never participate in, but it is filled with useful information and is designed to spark interest in different areas. This book covers subjects from horseback riding, ballet dancing, slumber parties, first aid, crafts, sports, nature, etc. It is a well of information.


The front of the book says it is for ages 9-99! I found information in The Adventurous Girl’s Handbook that I was interested in. Both of my daughters of course were interested in the chapter on horseback riding. Every one of my girls has gone through a horse lover stage. My older two actually owned a horse for awhile. I will be making sure they read the section on water safety and first aid, as that is always helpful to know.

The nature section is one of my favorite. It starts with hiking and then on to animals you can meet on the way. Such as snakes! It even explains what to do for a snake bite. Next they show you how to identify different animal tracks. From animal tracks we move on to wildflowers. Sixty four of them are covered. Which you can then go to the Arts and Crafts section to find out about pressing flowers. As you all know, one of my daughters really loves birds. There is information on them too!

I believe this would be a great book to work through with your daughter. If there is a section you are not interested in you can either skip on to the next section, or read it anyway just for the knowledge you will obtain. You never know when you might need it.

One neighbor will receive their own copy of The Adventurous Girl’s Handbook.
