I'm not a mom of a girl, so perhaps my take on this is off. But I really dig The Daring Book for Girls. Though that's just the point, argues Judith Warner at Domestic Disturbances (and, echoing her, Tracy Clark-Flory at Broadsheet). What's cool to Gen Xers is too cool for school to their progeny. But I'm voting girls will dig it. Has anyone test-driven the book with girls yet? I'd be eager to hear the results!
Meanwhile, judge for yourself. There's an excerpt from the book and a video of the authors' Today Show appearance here. And a listing of other upcoming appearances and events here.
(I'll be posting more fully on my response to the book in December, as part of the book's blog tour.)
