  1. I can’t wait until my daughter is older and we can get her an American girl doll! Anything that encourages reading and history is awesome! 

  2. I love that these dolls encourage girls to read by having the books to go with them!

  3. My favorite thing is that my daughter could customize a doll to look like her.

  4. I love that there are so many girls that my daughter can read about & relate to but she is also learning about History at the same time :)

  5. I used to love American Girl when I was a kid. Molly was my favorite, and I begged my Mom for a Molly doll, which I finally got for Christmas when I was 9. I actually still have the doll up in the top of my closet 21 years later! I have bought two different girl of the year dolls for my two nieces, and I also gave them my very used (and very loved) books. 

  6. I like that there are a variety of stories about different girls.  I remember reading them as a kid and can’t wait to share them with my daughter.

  7. I love that american girl encourages girls to be themselves.  I love that they tailor their dolls to match girls and their interests.  Thank you for the giveaway!

  12. I like that the dolls are from different countries and teach kids about the countries. My daughter is 26 now but my mom bought her 2 American Dolls. She had one with a wheel chair and crutches. I like that they show kids it’s ok to be different. I’m just an American Girl fan. My 2 neices would love this book. Thanks so much for the giveaway and chance to win!

  15. I love the books about the American Girl historical dolls.  They are a great way to introduce American History to elementary-aged children.  I am thrilled that my niece now enjoys American Girl.

  16. My favorite thing about American Girl is that the books feature a wide variety of girls with different interests, along with historical figures.  I think it’s great for girls to expand their views of what they can accomplish throughout their lives.
