    One big detracting factor from an otherwise enjoyable setWhat I appreciated about the Kit books Like the original American Girl doll bookson this later after the story of each book there is a Peek into the Past containing a few facts about the era using the story read as a springboard There are also pictures of people artificats etc from that time.The stories are engaging and age appropriate You don t have to worry about inappropriate words or other content.The illustrations are wel One big detracting factor from an otherwise enjoyable setWhat I appreciated about the Kit books Like the original American Girl doll bookson this later after the story of each book there is a Peek into the Past containing a few facts about the era using the story read as a springboard There are also pictures of people artificats etc from that time.The stories are engaging and age appropriate You don t have to worry about inappropriate words or other content.The illustrations are well done and throughout the books.What I did not like These stories are set during the Great Depression Instead of telling a story without making policy calls, the author is decidedly on the side that FDR is awesome as is everything he did The one character who takes issue with FDR s policies is mean, crotchety, tightfisted, unreasonable, and generally unlikeable I believe there is good reason to doubt the effectiveness of some of FDRs programs and policies and believe it unfair to paint such a stark, unreasonable picture of those dilemmas to such a young audience.Kit is the first American Girl doll made after the Pleasant Company sold out hence my distinction between the dolls before Kit the ones following including her I cannot help but wonder if the stark political inclusion shows a shift in who was managing things Original dolls still sometimes touched on political issues, but I believe they were better handled andage appropriate.Personally, I have no interest in any of the dolls their stories after the original ones When I have tried one of the newer sets I have been disappointed

    A few years ago I had decided to read through the original run of American Girl books I use original lightly cause I did include Kaya and Kit For whatever reason I never read the last twoso I ve decided to complete the series by reading on Kit and Molly s adventures Sowe have Margaret Kit Kitteredge She loves writing newspapers about what happens at home while her father is at work However, the Great Depression hits, her father loses his job and they re forced to take in Boarder A few years ago I had decided to read through the original run of American Girl books I use original lightly cause I did include Kaya and Kit For whatever reason I never read the last twoso I ve decided to complete the series by reading on Kit and Molly s adventures Sowe have Margaret Kit Kitteredge She loves writing newspapers about what happens at home while her father is at work However, the Great Depression hits, her father loses his job and they re forced to take in Boarders to get their mortgage payments Her entire collection was mostly her trying to cope with the changes to her life Including when her Aunt Millie comes to stay and teaches her to upcycle used items It was cute and Kit wasn t as annoying as we used to think as kids she wanted adventure and was very mature for a 12 year old I enjoyed her collection and I think Valerie Tripp has once again breathed life into a tense time period for younger audiences to experience

    This was our second go with an American Girl story collection for a family road trip It was fine, but not quite the hit of our first, the Addy stories But to clarify that s the opinion of two adult listeners My 7 year old loves this collection and has listened to it multiple times over And I mthan fine with that Kit s story is set during the Great Depression Her family falls somewhere in the middle of the crisis, not escaping unscathed but definitely managing to avoid the most painf This was our second go with an American Girl story collection for a family road trip It was fine, but not quite the hit of our first, the Addy stories But to clarify that s the opinion of two adult listeners My 7 year old loves this collection and has listened to it multiple times over And I mthan fine with that Kit s story is set during the Great Depression Her family falls somewhere in the middle of the crisis, not escaping unscathed but definitely managing to avoid the most painful effects Like other American Girls, Kit learns and grows over the course of a year, in this case learning to live joyfully with less and broadening her views on hobos and others who are experiencing the worst of the depression s rage Her foil is a stodgy rich uncle who lumps everyone who s struggling under the heading Lazy He regularly shares his opinions in the local paper and inspires Kit to find her own voice My criticisms are probably picky American Girls are all plucky, but Kit seemed almost unbearably, unbelievably so I also thought that while the range of opinions made sense, they were all a little too black and white to ring true Finally and I admit, this is probably and predictably my major hangup the newsroom The editor The reporters It just wasn t believable that a young girl would have the standing with them that is depicted here But in fairness, I can t think of a single fictional depiction of a newsroom that has fully satisfied me And I imagine every lawyer, doctor, priest and whoever feels the same about his own craft on the page We ve got Molly and Julie on deck andthan a thousand miles stretched out before us I expect to bethan satisfied, if not overwhelmed And I expect my kids to pass many hours happily with decent writing, engaging stories and a reasonable primer on twoeras in American history
