Review:
The newest offering in the American Girl line of historical dolls, Ruthie is best friends with Kit, whose story was showcased in last summer's inaugural American Girl movie. Ruthie arrives dressed in authentic 1930's clothing and with a paperback book that brings to life the challenges and adventures of a ten-year old girl living through America's Great Depression. The historical fiction teaches important lessons of sacrifice and compassion to today's youth, many of whom have never had to endure the hardships experienced by Ruthie's generation. Since reading this book, our children have become fascinated with this period of time in our country.
