This may be one of the most difficult to relate to in the series, which is sad, because it's the final one (in the main series, at least). I wish the focus hadn't been so strongly on Molly "looking the part," that perhaps she could have learned that talent and ability were more important. But that's not how it plays out and is probably the only one in the series that I rated 4/5, instead of 5/5. Still, the ending is really great!

I thought these books might be silly or feel too light, since these books were written to go along with actual dolls, thus they could have been very quick and simple. However, they don't smack of a marketing ploy; the author did a great job with them, and they're really just like any other book series written for kids this age. Also, the "Looking Back" section at the end of each book is really interesting! I love that it gives a little history of the time period, generally relating to the story, with pictures and even examples of ads/posters/propaganda from that time period. The focus is on children and even women, which is something that you really aren't going to see a lot of places. I think these books could be a great resource for teaching kids age 7 about the time period, how kids lived in those days, and the hardships they had to deal with. If I'd gotten to these books when my daughter was younger, I would have had her read them and then discussed them with her afterward. ( )
