Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
The Pleasant Company's American Girls Collection brings history alive with strong female protagonists in slender illustrated books for beginning novel readers. Devoted fans will happily welcome the new heroine, Addy. Connie Porter helps young readers envision the 1864 enslavement of Addy with the help of illustrations by Melodye Rosales that bring out the drama, warmth, and emotional tone. In Meet Addy, we are introduced to Addy. She is caring, resourceful, and her love of and belief in family support her through the trials of seeing her father and brother sold, the cruelty of an overseer, and leaving her adored baby sister behind when she and her mother run away. Recommended for a reader old enough to handle the story's message, the book lends itself to reading out loud where it can create a perfect beginning for meaningful family discussions about everything from the bonds of family to the bonds of slavery. Addy Learns A Lesson begins after Addy and her mother have reached the bustling city of Philadelphia and freedom. Addy triumphs against conflicting friendships, economic survival, and school. The struggle against poverty continues in Addy's Surprise, but there is the balance of loving friends, appreciation of their bettering life, and finally a warm reunion with Poppa. Also in the series are: Happy Birthday, Addy, in which Addy claims a birthday; Addy Saves the Day set after the Civil War, and Changes for Addy in which the long struggle to reunite Addy's family ends.
