Summary

From a real-life derring-do woman, exhilarating stories, activities, and tips to inspire girls to pursue lives of adventure and excitement. 

Why should girls miss out on the joy of adventure? They can jump off rocks, swing on ropes, and climb trees just as well as boys can. But girls often allow fear to stand in their way. 

In The Gutsy Girl, author Caroline Paul emboldens girls to seek out a life of exhilaration. Once a young scaredy-cat herself, Caroline decided that fear got in the way of the life she wanted - of excitement, confidence, self-reliance, friendship, and fun. She has since flown planes, rafted big rivers, climbed tall mountains, and fought fires as one of the first female firefighters in San Francisco. 

In The Gutsy Girl, she shares her greatest escapades as well as those of other girls and women from throughout history and offers engaging activities, such as confidence-building stances, creating a compass, positive self-talk, and using crickets to estimate outside temperatures. The Gutsy Girl is Lean In for young girls, a book about the glorious things that happen when you unshackle from fear and open up to exhilaration.  

Fully illustrated and enlivened by best-selling illustrator Wendy MacNaughton's whimsical pen-and-ink drawings. Includes a PDF of maps, illustrations, and journal entry pages. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
