What an absolute gem–an adventure guide for middle-grade girls complete with “instructions”, inspirations, storytelling, journal prompts, planning tools, quotes from girl heroes and more. One power-packed illustrated page asks the reader: “How can you tell if you’re an adventurer? … You’re with your best friend. You’re outside in the mud. The word ‘quest’ gets used often. You have a flashlight in your hand. You write things in code….” I’m getting a copy for my BFF in grade school, Rosie, that I haven’t seen in decades because we did all this crazy #$@! and then some. And another for our trailblazing moms who encouraged us. This book’s not just an inspirational action guide for little girls, it’s a joyful reminder and badge of pride for big girls.
