A World of Girls



This flip book devotes one side to fictional stories that take the Brownie friends characters to diverse places in the world. The other side has real-life Brownies exploring their World of Girls closer to home. Through this journey’s many adventures, anecdotes, and activities, Brownies have fun learning how stories contain clues they can use to make the world a better place, which strengthens their confidence.

This is a 10-session Journey, but could be modified to fit your troop’s needs.
