Here Come the Girl Scouts!: The Amazing All-True Story of Juliette "Daisy" Gordon Low and Her Great Adventure by Shana Corey, Hadley Hooper
The amazing, all-true story of the first Girl Scouts and their visionary founder.
Juliette Gordon Low--Daisy to her friends and family--was not like most girls of the Victorian era.
Prim and proper?
Dainty and delicate?
She loved the outdoors, and she yearned for adventure! Born into a family of pathfinders and pioneers, she too wanted to make a difference in the world--and nothing would stop her.
Combining her ancestors’ passion for service with her own adventurous spirit and her belief that girls could do anything, she founded the Girl Scouts. One hundred years later, they continue to have adventures, do good deeds, and make a difference!

I read this to my first grade Daisy troop and they loved it! They were fascinated by the different activities Girl Scouts used to do, like milking cows and skinning sardines, and the idea that one hundred years ago some people didn't think girls should even play outside. Great "girls can do anything" message.
