Celebrate Women's History Month with your favorite child by sharing books about Amelia Earhart, famous aviator and Juliette Low, founder of the Girl Scouts.

What better way to celebrate Women’s History Month than by sharing stories of outstanding young girls with an outstanding young person in your life?

“There’s not one thing I can’t do that boys can,” declared the young Juliette Gordon Low, whose determination to reach beyond the social limitations of her time resulted in her creation of the Girl Scouts.

“Girls can do anything that boys can do. I’m sick and tired of being told I can’t do this and I can’t do that. And all because I’m a girl!” said the young Amelia Earhart, who grew up to break through all boundaries of flight for women.

Growing up in post-Civil War Georgia, Juliette “Daisy” Low preferred stirrups to dance shoes and climbing trees to needle and thread. In "Juliette Low, Girl Scout Founder," Volume 4 in Patria Press’s Young Patriots Series, young readers ages 8-12 will meet Juliette as a girl whose adventures foretold the courageous and visionary woman she would become.

In "Amelia Earhart, Young Air Pioneer," Volume 1 in the Young Patriots Series and winner of the Parent’s Choice Outstanding Book Award, kids will follow the adventures of a young heroine who showed bravery and a cool head under pressure even as a child. Rescuing the neighbor boys from an angry dog, building (and riding!) her own roller coaster, narrowly missing danger while sledding on an icy hill are just a few of the adventures that helped transform the girl Amelia into the intrepid aviator and explorer she became.

After all, if Amelia and Juliette as ordinary girls could grow up to accomplish the extraordinary, couldn’t anyone?

"Juliette Low, Girl Scout Founder" was written by Helen Boyd Higgins, and "Amelia Earhart, Young Air Pioneer" was written by Jane Moore Howe. Both books, as well as the other 4 volumes in the Young Patriots Series are sold at major bookstores on- and off-line. All titles in the Young Patriots Series are priced at $9.95 paperback and $14.95 hardback.
