    " The "American Girl Dolls" came out during my girlhood. My sister and I both had the Kirsten doll, and I don't think she would have meant as much to either of us without the stories. We loved that doll because we knew her through her books. "

    " Her books were so sad. Friends die, friends move, nearly die in blizzard, birthday overshadowed by baby, almost eaten by bears, house burns down. "

    " An immigrant girl who traveled across the sea from Sweden to America and settled in the midwest as a pioneer. "

    " These series was not my favorite one. I feel there would be a few clarifications I would want to make with my daughter about what is right and wrong. Do you take someones stuff even if they are dead and have no family? I don't know maybe in 1854 you do. "

    " not my favorite american girl as i recall...maybe kirsten was the last set i read as i was growing out of it because i can't think of anything specific i disliked about her. "

    " Sorry, Emily: I was never the biggest Kirsten fan. However, I think this has more to do with the fact that I though Laura Ingalls Wilder was a sap, and they had that whole prairie thing in common. I liked the older sister, and was for some reason super excited that her name was Lisbeth. "
