SECTION XIX

REFERENCE READING FOR GIRL SCOUTS

The following books have been selected for the Girl Scouts with two ideas in mind: first, to list some of the best books of the world, with which all persons should be familiar, and second, to give books that should easily be available in all parts of the country. In some cities the Public Libraries have "Girl Scout Shelves." Has your library one? In some places the Libraries have Reading Clubs for young people, conducted by the boys and girls themselves under the guidance of specially trained librarians who know just how to help bring the right book to hand, on any subject a Scout would be interested in. In Manhattan there are no less than thirty such clubs in connection with the various district libraries. Why not have one of these in your town?

The American Library Association, whose headquarters are in Chicago, Ill., at 78 East Washington Street, will help to bring books to rural districts and places without regular public libraries. Write to them for help if you need it.

The Congressional Library may be called upon at any time for bibliography on any special topic.

The books in this section are in addition to the special references for Proficiency Tests in Section XVIII.

FOR CAPTAINS, LIEUTENANTS, COMMISSIONERS AND OTHER GIRL SCOUT OFFICERS

After a thorough study of Scouting for Girls, the authorized American Handbook, Scout Captains and Lieutenants are urged to read the following list of allied Handbooks for Leaders as containing many practical hints for workers with young people, and emphasizing the essential unity of these movements.

A study of these manuals will bring out very clearly the fact that though our methods of approach and phraseology may differ in certain instances, our ultimate aim and our broad general principles are precisely the same.

The books in the following list which have been starred are recommended as particularly practical for all students and friends of young people. They represent the latest thought of the greatest authorities on the subjects most closely allied with the sympathetic study of adolescence. It is impossible to isolate a study of the girlhood of America from the kindred topics of women in industry and politics, the growth of the community spirit, the present theories of education, and in general a brief survey of economics, sociology and psychology.

Many of these titles appear technical and dry, but the books have been carefully selected with a view to their readable and stimulating qualities, and no one need be a profound student in order to understand and appreciate them.

It is especially advisable that Leaders in the Girl Scout organization should be reasonably well informed as to the principal social movements of the day so as to relate the effective organization of the young people of the country with corresponding progress along other lines. The more broadly cultivated our Captains and Councillors become, the more vital and enduring will be the work of the Girl Scouts, and this breadth of view cannot be obtained from the knowledge and practice of what might be called the "technique of Scouting" alone.

Order From GIRL SCOUTS, INC. National Headquarters 189 Lexington Ave. New York City

The Woodcraft Section of SCOUTING FOR GIRLS gives the Girl Scout a taste of one of the jolliest, most readable books about the out of door life that any girl can have: "The Woodcraft Manual for Girls," by Ernest Thompson Seton, published by Doubleday Page and Company for the Woodcraft League Of America, Inc.

Mr. Seton has long been loved by the young people of many countries for his marvelous understanding of animals and their homes, and in this book he has shared his secrets with the boys and girls of America; so that any Girl Scout who wants to be sure of herself on the trail and equipped for all emergencies of the woods, could add no better guide book to her Troop or personal life than this one.
