    " Oh Molly, my favorite doll growing up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 MaryRachel | 2/15/2014

    " These are really interesting books that tell you a lot about what it was like to be on the home-front during WWII. But I though Molly was kind of rude throughout the books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 2/12/2014

    " I read the American girls when i was young. Boy did I love reading about their lives! I related the most to Molly. I loved reading her stories, and i guess I was kind of a Molly myself. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristin Bateman | 1/25/2014

    " Molly might be my favorite American Girl in terms of story lines. She shows growth and maturity, and is the only original AG still available for sale! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 kaitlyn | 1/17/2014

    " Molly was always my favorite. Probably because she wears glasses. I love these books. And they had great pictures too, and facts about the era that the girls lived in. So great. I might have to go out and buy them so I can reread them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natasha | 1/16/2014

    " Of all the American Girl books, Molly's stories were the ones that bridged the generation gap between me and my mom. She and I cried together at Changes for Molly and laughed ourselves silly at Meet Molly. Changes for Molly still brings a tear to my eye with a re-read as a young adult. It probably always will. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimberly Cheyenne | 1/15/2014

    " Wow, the things they did without during the war. The American girl books made history a exciting thing to read about. Molly & I had a lot in common even wearing glasses. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 The names Su..(: | 1/1/2014

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah Maddaford | 12/22/2013

    " Molly was absolutely the most boring of the American girls when I was a kid. She lived during a fascinating time period, but her every day life was just too similar to mine. The evidence of rationing and the war wasn't very obvious and Molly was pretty dull otherwise. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 12/18/2013

    " This is very cute and my girls loved listening to Molly. I can tell that it was written in our day about hte 1944 time era, but it's still very sweet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 12/17/2013

    " I use to be obsessed about all the American Girl books, but Molly was definetley my fav character out of them all. These books give a cool way to learn history while enjoying reading the book at the same time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 12/16/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda Wheet | 3/15/2012

    " Oh Molly. Molly was my best friend as a kid. I loved everything about her, her spirit, her hometown, her tenacity for hard times. Reading this again as the last set before boxing all of my books almost made me cry. "
