A young girl working on her first embroidery sampler who would rather read. Reminds me a bit of what I learned about Salem College when it was a girls school and they did samplers and public oral exams. I'm sure some of those girls would have rather read too! :)
I think historical fiction is my favorite so this was right up there. It is a great book about a young girl learning sewing techniques in 1822. I especially enjoyed the afterward. Great for little girls. PB really liked what Abbie put on her sampler and requested the book again based on that.
