Thursday things I learned from books…Daring Book for Girls

New theme for Thursdays…Things I learned from books…This week it’s from the Daring Book for Girls.  It’s actually a great book for girls and my almost 9 year old LOVES it as do I!

  1. There are FOURTEEN types of tag games: Blob tag/Chinese Dragon tag, Freeze tag, Tornado tag (talk about a dizzy but fun one!), TV tag, Shadow tag, Time Warp tag, Line tag, Zombie tag, Electric tag, Battle tag, Inverted tag, Infection tag, Hot Lava tag, and Hide and Seek tag…
  2. “Bonjour ma petite chou, t’as passe une bonne journee?” means “Hello my little cabbage, did you have a good day?”
  3. Vinegar applied to the body is a mosquito repellent
  4. Julia Child was a spy before she became a famouse chef
  5. Math trick: The Sutra Multiplying trick…”By one more than the one before” to be used when squaring numbers ending in 5…Example…35(squared)=….5(sqaured)2 will always be 25 so that is the ending number of your answer and part 1…In “35” the number “before” the last is “3”. “One more” than 3 is 4. Multiply 3*4 to get 12 then put it before the ending 25 so the answer is 1225…35 (squared)=1225.

FROM THE AUTHOR’S WEBSITE…”The Daring Book for Girls is the essential guide to girlhood, covering everything from school-yard games to great women in history! It’s filled with things to know and do that are perfect for every girl with an independent spirit and a love of adventure.” The Daring Book for Girls is the manual for everything that girls need to know—and that doesn’t mean sewing buttonholes! Whether it’s female heroes in history, secret note-passing skills, science projects, friendship bracelets, double dutch, cats cradle, the perfect cartwheel or the eternal mystery of what boys are thinking, this book has it all. But it’s not just a guide to giggling at sleepovers—although that’s included, of course! Whether readers consider themselves tomboys, girly-girls, or a little bit of both, this book is every girl’s invitation to adventure.” from Harpers Collins
