The Daisy Girl Scouts earn the Promise Center and Petals, which focus on the Girl Scout Law, and are placed on the front of the tunic in a daisy design.  (See graphic at the end of this post.)  When I was a leader, I wanted to give the young girls a story to help them remember the meaning behind each line of the law.  The goal being that as the year progressed, the “law” would be more than something they had memorized and could ramble through…

Here are the books I found, by petal color. Can you think of others?
