Mother Daughter Book Club- No Damsel in Distress

For January, our selection was No Damsel in Distress (World folktales for Strong Girls).
Amazon:  Jane Yolen has struck in the gold yet again with this collection of folktales starring clever, brave, daring, courageous women from all over the world.

We read "The Samurai Maiden," a Japanese folktale for our book club.  Chelsea really enjoyed the other folktales from around the world in the book. 
Yoomi led us in a sushi making activity.  It was amazingly fun.












The favors were bottles of Propel with a quote.  The girl in the story "propelled" herself off a cliff to save her father.  She showed great courage.
