As an English teacher, I highly recommended Kristen, Abbey, and all the other American Girls to many young elementary, middle school, and Junior High girls. My daughters loved the stories. My oldest has an American Girls' Kristen Doll that she refuses to let go of. Abbey was my youngest daughter favorite. I recommended the books to the daughters of friends and co-workers, and even let slip to an honor student who excelled in English & Literature about the American Girl Store. Your daughters will love these books and every one of the American Girls.
