Publisher Description:

Kit Kittredge has a nose for news—but she never dreamed that the news stories about the hard times of the Depression would become her own story. First Mother’s bothersome friends move in with the Kittredges. Then Dad loses his business, and Kit’s family could lose their house! Things look hopeless, but a clever idea might let her family keep their home. Can Kit help pull it off? The first book in Kit’s stories is richly illustrated in full color and includes a “Looking Back” historical section about Kit’s world in 1934.

Category Description for Kit Books:

Kit Kittredge is an energetic and resourceful young lady growing up in a "riches to rags" family in 1934. Portrays American life during the Great Depression.

Category Description for American Girls:

Historical fiction at its finest for girls. These books each focus on a different American girl from a particular time in American history, each with a different lifestyle, heritage, hopes, and desires. These are popular with their audiences because the girls are so easy to identify with and the stories realistically portray what life was like at that time with events, styles and culture expertly interwoven. Our girls devoured these when they were younger, and although the series has undergone some changes, the stories are still available for a whole new generation. There are two books available for each historical girl and are abridged. The softcover books are formatted like chapter books (104-110 pages) with full-color illustrations and several pages of additional historical content at the end. Please note that the series is changing from "Beforever" to newer editions with each girl's name featured more prominently on the cover and our inventory will gradually change to the new editions.
