I like this book for a few reasons. First, I used to read American Girl books when I was a child and I'm happy to see that they are still being created and changed. They have rearranged and added on to the older books I knew as a child. Secondly, I enjoyed the plot in this story. It's very interesting and forces children to learn about history perhaps without even realizing it. Lastly, the story pushes student to think about and discuss topics that they may not normally be exposed to in regard to the historical and economic aspects. I believe that the message of this book is about showing compassion to others and being a good friend even when people are different than us. ( )
