For some reason when I was growing up, I was not much of a reader, until I discovered these books. The whole series (and the other America Girl's collection) was always a constant page turner for me. The vivid writing transports you into a time of history, however, I connected to a lot of the same problems, relationships, and ways of lives that these girls were experiencing. It was nice to discover that Something I was experiencing as a child was actually happening to other girls back, even from a long time ago. Samantha, is a girl growing up in a very proper Victorian home, but her fun spirit and adventures, always put a smile to my face.
The stories tell of real life situations that were occurred in that time period (1904)and are teachable moments, such as racism and child labor.

Nancy I have not read the American Girl series but the way you describe the Samantha book makes me want to pick it up and read it. I don't remember being aquainted with them when I was young and I have boys at home now so they weren't books I bought. It is always nice to read a book that you can relate to even if it was at a different time period or when you were a child.
