"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.

Read from the Book

"I've got something for the girls of Savannah, and all America, and all the world," Juliette Low told a good friend, "And we're going to start it tonight!" He voice was full of excitement as she shared her plans to start Girl Scout troops all over the country.  Her friend thought it was just another of Daisy's crazy ideas. Thever teaser her about her "Girl Scoots."  But Daisy fooled them all. Within days, there were 18 Girl Scouts in America. In fifteen years, there were nearly 168,000.

Editorial Reviews

"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."
