Do You Need To Get This Book? IV 26 May 2011
By fredtownward - Published on
Format: Hardcover
That's a fair question if you already have or plan to get The Daring Book for Girls because 34 of the items in this book are also found in the big blue book. (Interestingly, there is no overlap with anything in The Double-Daring Book for Girls.)

The 12 following items are the only ones unique to this book:

Page 1, "Galaxies".
Page 54, "Tongue Twisters".
Page 59, "Pilots", expanded from the "Explorers" item in the big blue book.
Page 63, "Haiku".
Page 72, "All About Zero".
Page 96, "Emily Dickinson".
Page 130, "Layers of the Earth".
Page 133, "Layers of the Air".
Page 148, "French Terms".
Page 153, "French Around the World".
Page 178, "The Fibonacci Sequence".
Page 199, "Greek Columns".

In addition many of the items have different illustrations.

Note: Anyone who has been reluctant to purchase the big blue book because as I and a number of reviewers have noted, it includes a handful of truly questionable activities, which devout Christians will consider dabbling with the occult, and which others may question because in the absence of supernatural powers they are arguably a big fat waste of time, have another reason for choosing to purchase this book. In what IMHO cannot possibly be a coincidence ALL of the offending items have been left out of this book.

Would that the authors and the publisher had had the wisdom to leave them out of the big blue book.
