It's always nice to see Susan get a little bit of the spotlight with Molly. Molly and Susan are paired together for a project, but have vastly different ideas of how to present it.

Molly wants to go with the old standard of reading it, possibly with a timeline that she will then point to during particularly important parts.

Susan, on the other hand, wants to go all out and dress up like George Washington [the subject of their project] and re-enact certain scenes from his life.

Molly is mortified. E

This review is from the perspective of a mother. I am reading the books to decided when they are age appropriate for my daughter.

Molly and Susan get paired up for a school project (were there really this many school projects in the forties?), and quickly realize that they have different ideas about what constitutes a good presentation. Molly obsesses a bit about Susan's different ideas, and it quite cruel in sharing her opinions, and it tests their friendship.

I think this book does an excellent

Molly and Susan team up to present a report on George Washington to the class. The more they talk about how they are going to do the report, though, the more they tend to disagree, to the point where their friendship seems over.

Molly wants to present a straight "just-the-facts-m'am" type of report, and Susan wants to act out the report. In the end they agree to a compromise and the report they give goes over extremely well, earning both an A+ for their project.

The historical section presents so

Molly and Susan have paired up to write a report for their class on George Washington.

This book, although short and simple, really does spend some time on deep characterization, a surprise to me. Molly, who doesn't like change and would prefer to do things the way they have always been done, is challenged to be creative and do something different.

I like seeing Molly grow and change in the course of a book. I admire her for being daring, and for showing true friendship in trusting her partner to

This book's lesson is about friendship and working things out after one has quarreled. It was a nice story with a good ending, but it wasn't terribly interesting. I would recommend if you were a fan of the American Girl book series.

Molly and Susan are excited when they are paired up to write a report on President Washington, but Molly and Susan have very different ideas about how to do their report. Can they overcome their differences and present an A+ report?

If only my school reports were this entertaining. Thank God they didn't have PowerPoint in the 40s!
