If you’re a fan of Judy Blume’s books, check out the movie adaptation of “Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret”!
You can choose from 2 designs. The patches celebrate the coming-of-age experience and highlights the important lessons learned from Margaret's story.
Our patch encourages girls to reflect on their own relationships with their parents and to embrace their unique experiences in personal growth.
There are valuable lessons that girls can take away from the film. Here are a few things that girls can learn💡:
1. It's normal to have questions and doubts about growing up! Margaret's character struggles with questions about puberty, religion, and fitting in with her peers.
2. Girls are not alone in their struggles!
3. The importance of having a support system. Throughout the book, Margaret relies on her friends, family, and even God to help her navigate the challenges of growing up.
4. The importance of being true to oneself. Margaret is a relatable character who is trying to figure out who she is and where she fits in. Girls can learn from her experiences that it's important to be true to themselves, even if it means going against the norm.
The second patch is a design I made for an amazing leader who has come up with an activity that celebrates going back and reading all of Judy Blume's books at the library. You should definitely check it out. It’s $5 and you can order it from her here


Setup a book club:

  1. Choose a group of people who have read the book or are interested in reading it. This could be a Girl Scout troop or any group of girls who want to participate.

  2. Set a date and time for the book club meeting. You can meet in person or virtually depending on your group's preferences and circumstances.

  3. Prepare discussion questions to guide the conversation. Here are some sample questions to get you started:

  • Which character did you relate to the most and why?
  • What themes did you notice throughout the book?
  • How did Margaret's relationships with her family and friends evolve throughout the story?
  • What did you think about the book's treatment of religion and spirituality?
  • How did the book make you feel, and why?
  1. During the book club meeting, take turns answering the discussion questions and sharing your thoughts about the book. Encourage everyone to participate and share their perspectives.

  2. Wrap up the meeting by reflecting on what you learned from the book and how you can apply those lessons to your own lives. You can also use this time to brainstorm ideas for how to incorporate the book's themes and lessons into your Girl Scout activities or daily life.

By setting up a book club and engaging in discussion with others, you can deepen your understanding of the book and learn from its themes and messages in a more interactive way.
