This post may contain affiliate links and this site is not connected with, affiliated with, approved by, endorsed by The Girl Scouts of the USA or the Frontier Girls. Ideas are my own and I share to help you run your troops with ease.

When it comes to communicating, writing is one of the most powerful and effective ways to connect with others.  I am excited to introduce you to Micheal Anderson who is a writer, blogger, and longtime Girl Scout supporter. She came up with a creative way that girls can earn their Junior Scribe Badge and have fun doing it.

How to Meet the Author

Micheal is offering Junior Girl Scouts the opportunity to earn their Scribe badge, while also allowing them to meet the author. This activity is ideal for troops or Service Units.
1.  Purchase the book Zoey Lyndon’s Big Move to the Lou and read it.
2.  Write the author a letter after reading it.  If the entire troop is participating, then they can email me letters all at once and put their troop number on the letters and in the subject line of the email.
3.  Micheal will attend one of your troop meetings via Zoom, to discuss the writing process and to answer the letters.
If leaders are interested, they can contact me at [email protected]  and write “Im Interested” in the subject line of the email along with their troop number.

What is Book About?

Zoey Lyndon’s Big Move to the Lou is an inspiring book about a 4th grade science loving girl who  desperately wants to fit in at her new school.  She struggles initially, but her love of science is what ultimately ends up breaking the ice for her and she learns to navigate the fourth grade like a pro.  This is a fun, fast paced story that encourages girls to pursue STEM.
Where to Purchase Book?
You can purchase Zoey Lyndon’s Big Move to the Lou on Amazon, and can be purchased in paperback or ebook version.

My name is Jodi Carlson, I am a mom, wife, & web designer and come with 25 years of GS experience. I am now sharing my experiences and helping other Girl leaders be great and successful and shape today’s girls to be the leaders of tomorrow. I was blessed with a Son in March of 2015 and stepped down as a full time girl leader, but missed planning and volunteering, so I decided after 25 years I have so many ideas to inspire girls and help leaders so I choose to build this blog and it has grown into a resource beyond GS, I am reaching girl leaders in many organizations.
