American Girl Fans – Three New Books Released!

If you have a daughter AROUND the age of 8… odds are you know all about ‘American Girl’. I love this line because it’s not just about dolls and playing dress up. It’s about cultivating a desire to explore, understanding the importance of a backstory, and empowering young females to obtain the skills needed to be confident and positive.

Yes. Please.

This month, American Girl introduced three new books for our little ones including:

  • A Rebecca Mystery: The Crystal Ball – solve exciting and suspenseful mysteries
  • A Smart Girl’s Guide to Liking Herself (even on the bad days) – learn more about themselves and their friends /family with “More Lists”
  • Innerstar University: The New Girl – discover how decisions can change the outcome of a story (over 2o different endings!)

I used to love those books that would change depending on what path you decided to walk on. I remember reading them over and over again in an attempt to discover every sequence. 😉

My favorite book out of the lot is “A Smart Girl’s Guide to Liking Herself”. It has such a powerful message and I think everyone can benefit from reading the title. Here are some sample pages:
