What a great series these books are! Filled with history told from fictional characters. They make you feel as if you are there. I read these books as a child. I always love reading the books and then the back of the books contains this from the past that they talked about in the book with pictures many times of what things looked like from the era the girl was from. I have not read some of the newer girls but I have read: Molly, Kirsten, Felicity, Addy and Samantha. I have read one of the Kit books and a short story from Josefina but none of the other girls. I do hope to someday because they have remained consistent in their standard from what I have heard.
