" Reliving a bit of childhood.Great book about her lifespan. Easy quick read. " said.

" I think I read every one of these biographies of the childhood of famous Americans. It was series, and I thought the covers were a solid blue. " said.

" Good children's book on part of the childhood of the founder of Girl Scouts, Juliette Gordon Low. " said.

" All of the titles in this series are excellent. The authors know their audience and engage them immediately. The books are fun to read and provide a little color to the history and heroes that 8- to 12-year-olds might not get from the typical textbook. I wish there was an opportunity to keep the series going with updated list of heroes and heroines.To read our full review, go to The Reading TubĀ®. " said.

"I read nearly all of the The Childhood of Famous Americans series that West Park Elementary had. Most of those I read are now out of print. I remember Dorothea Dix, Mollie Pitcher, Julia Ward Howe, Helen Keller, Nancy Hanks Lincoln, Harriett Tubman, Elizabeth Blackwell, Jane Addams, Betsy Ross, Clara Barton, Susan B. Anthony. There must have been many more. Despite their stilted content, these books were one place you could read about women with accomplished lives (remember, this was the early 1960s -- feminism hadn't been invented yet). " said.

"The cover says Girl Scout Founder but the inside says Money Grab.

I mean, I get wanting to tell children about the childhood of such an amazing woman - but was it necessary to make Juliette Low so annoyingly precocious?

Juliette spends the first part of the book righteously defending her confederate family while in the heart of Northern territory.

That I get - she's a kid, she doesn't understand the war, she just knows that her friends and family are fighting for the South.

But is it necessary to make her so annoying? For example, when the war is over, the Northerner's start singing their freedom song.

Once they finish, little 5-or-6-year-old Juliette begins singing the confederate song as an act of defiance...and the gang of big burly southern-hating men...applaud?

Cause she's such a sweet and dandy gal. Gee willikers. If only we had Juliette on the front lines - friendship and rainbows would've happened so much sooner.

The whole book was like that - Juliette would skip from one annoying action to another with nary a thought to her own precocious self - leaving all the adults to marvel over her tenacity and bravery.

Gag me with a spoon.

And then, the last few pages...we get a brief, brief summary of how Juliette thought that Girl Guides would be a great thing to start in the U.S.

The End.

Really? What's the point of calling this book "Juliette Low: Girl Scout Founder" if we don't actually talk about Girl Scouts?

Audiobook Comments
Read by Lynn Taccogna. Juliette sounded like a 60 year old southern belle on her way to Sunday mass - very disconcerting considering she was supposed to be 5 years old.
