I used this book with both of my daughters when the oldest was an 8th grader and the youngest was a 5th grader They loved this program Although the recommended ages are younger than 8th grade there are recommended "extras" including web sites and research activities that make this very fun and educational for older girls as well We would also get the cooking craft and World books that go along with each of the American Girls which added to the great appeal of this product If your daughters love the American Girl dolls and books I cannot say enough about this product Well worth the expense Even though the new dolls are not included in this book it was very easy to add those books and modify the activities for use with those This was my favorite learning experience with my daughters together by far!!

The American Girl series was created by elementary school teacher Pleasant Rowland to teach American History in an engaging and fun format Homeschooling mother Cindy Sotelo has taken Pleasant Rowland's idea a step further by creating the "Portraits of American Girlhood" unit study The study is divided into seven units one for each American Girl from Felicity to Molly arranged according to historical time period Please note that since the publication of this unit study two new American Girls have been introduced Kaya and Julie They are not covered in this unit studyThe unit study covers social studies history science math activities grammar and character study I purchased this unit study to use as our daughters introduction to American History The unit study is graded for grades 2-5 however based on our experience I would recommend it be utilized for grades 4-5 To complete your curriculum you will have to the following materials on hand: American Girl book series on each American girl craft and cookbooks for each American girl and "Welcome to ____'s World" for each American girl

I was very excited to get this and to use the American Girl books with my two daughters I am so disappointed Most of the ideas are just not very well developed they are shallow activities One day may be a well thought out activity the next will just say to read or go to the library and the next is an activity which seems to have no grounding For lack of a better it feels schizophrenic in a manner of speaking Just no pattern or consistency at all Also my husband about freaked when I put the printables' CD in the computer and it began grinding trying to read it The sticker used to decorate the CD was of poor quality and crooked causing quite a ruckus in the player I would not recommend it or purchase it again I would have tried to get a refund but feel I should have done my own homework before purchasing

We just received this and have not started using it yet Our daughters are very excited about it I found most of the out of print resources on ebay However I could not find the out of print teacher guides for anything remotely reasonable in price I taught a class last year for our homeschool coop with handmade historical dresses using inexpensive 18 inch dolls from Michael's and Joanns We found patterns on infinitefreedom Simplicity and McCalls but we could not find the actual AG patterns One caveat is that this is not a complete curriculum so if you wish to give a more complete picture of American history you will need to purchase something that fills in the gaps between the dolls It looks great and really fun I like it better than the lapbook from hands of a child

My 9 and 11 year old daughters loved doing this study last year! I also came up with additional resources for each character so that everything could be easily and safely found in one place I hope others are able to use it too! It can be found here: http://portraitsofamericangirlhoodblogspotcom
