My family is such a huge fan of American Girl books. In fact, I think we own about 30 of them at this point. But who is counting? How could we resist?
American Girl books are always inspiring, rewarding, and give my daughter an adventure to remember filled with one life lesson after the other. As a mother, what more can I ask for?
On August 28th, girls across the country will discover the world of Beforever – the newest addition to the American Girl Book collection.
Natalie is beyond excited. She LOVES her American Girl…both the dolls and the books. These are her absolute favorite books to read and she has American Girl doll parties with her friends all the time. It’s so sweet…I just love seeing it!
American Girl Books – NEW Beforever Historical Dolls and Books
Beforever is American Girl’s newly-enhanced historical line of dolls that connects girls ages 8 and up with inspiring characters and timeless stories from America’s past.
The line was first introduced in 1986 as The American Girls Collection with the goal of having girls explore the past, yet find their place in the present and think about all the wonderful possibilities the future can bring!
It’s just a priceless collection of beautiful, well-constructed, and lovable 18-inch dolls I think all girls can really enjoy and appreciate.
American Girl Beforever Lessons
Perhaps one of the most impressive parts of what is now Beforever, is that it really shows girls the common threads they share with the girls from the past…interests, challenges, dreams.
Each character brings with her a two-volume book series that brings her life and her era to modern times while focusing on themes we can all understand like: family, school, cultural celebrations, and the changes and challenges that every girls faces are she grows up.
There are currently eight Beforever characters in the line: Kaya, Caroline, Addy, Samantha, Rebecca, Kit, and Julie. Oh yes…for those that love Samantha Parkington…she’s back!
American Girl decided to bring Sam back to celebrate the launch of Beforever!! Samantha was one of the original 1986 characters that was archived in 2008. She will be reintroduced within the American Girl Books with new products, including an ice cream parlor, a bike, a bedroom set, and several new outfits and accessories.
