I read this with my Grandaughter She enjoys this series quite a bit Recommended for readers who enjoy Wilder s Little House series. I have to say that I always give AG books 5 stars I can t help it But out of all of the Kirsten books I ve read so far, this is my favorite This was a very sweet story with a lot of involvement Very good book One of my favorites of the AG series.

ins given the full day to play with her friends on her birthday, and they have a wonderful surprise for her I find this series to be dull compared to some of the others I have read with the exception of the first book The family does experience several things on the frontier that so many did during the time, but yet I felt this book was lacking a little Perhaps it is the author s writing style I am not drawn to Kirsten like I was Samantha and Caroline or even Felicity I am using a few of these books for a book discussion I think the author does hit on some great topics though Childbirth in the 1850s was muchrisky than today Also, the threat on tornadoes and how people protected themselves is not all that different than today Girls from this time did a lot of sewing as well, something not many girls today know how to do Kittens and hand sewn friendship quilts Sign me up This one was fun again, a really interesting look at what it would have been like to grow up in the Midwest in the 1850 s There is just something so nostalgic about her stories, about the simpler times As a crafty gal myself I loved reading about how all Kirsten wanted to do for her birthday was sit with her friends and sew It s a busy time for Kirsten and her family, her mama is having a baby and that means she has to do double the work at home That means she has to miss school and making the quilt with

feelings haven t changed at all This is the American Girls Collection Kirsten This was another fun book in the series We learned about frontier births in the home with high chance of infants or mothers dying in childbirth , quilting and teamwork, and barn raisings Kirsten has a simple day with friends for her birthday As my birthday is tomorrow, this sounds good to me This was a sweet, optimistic little story she really did seem like she had an absolute blast on her birthday I liked Kirsten babying the smallest newborn kitten I think this is where my childhood self first got the notion of a heart shaped cake and I thought it was genius. Wonderful book for the American Girls series.
