I was excited to snag an affordable used copy of this book, and enjoyed it very much, especially since I am now old enough to feel less acute vicarious embarrassment over Felicity's scrapes. These short stories are all fun and educational, and the collection also includes one about Valentine's Day that was never published as a stand-alone. I had no idea that this collection would include something new, and enjoyed that story tremendously. It is so sweet and creative, and I'm glad that I got to r ...more

This book has five separate short stories from the Felicity: An American Girl series that I’ve been reading for the “American Girls” podcast that I’ve been listening to by Allison Horrocks and Mary Mahoney.

Reading for a second time in 2013, I think I liked this collection a bit more than I had originally. The stories are nice and fit neatly into Felicity's timeline. And giving each story its own historical context section meant that a lot of detailed information could be shared about relatively minor things, like Valentine's Day. ...more

These little editions are so great for the short stories. I acquired all of them this summer, and it's nice to have the stories that were added just to make complete sets. These build on the Felicity character, but are a bit lacking in depth. ...more

This was a gift from my friend Sarah, and it was a fun little read! I read all the regular Felicity stories when I was a kid, but had never read the short stories. It was a real treat to get to read new-to-me Felicity stories that I'd never read before! :) ...more
