I don't care if your Catholic,Mormon,or don't believe in god at all because these books Rock! This story is about a little girls point of view dealing with family , adversity,dreams,and growing up in 1914 in New York City. There are some parts that touch on the terrible things that were going on in Russia at that time against Jews and a big part of this little girls life and that is her Jewish beliefs. These books were NOT intended to insult anyone elses beliefs or try to get anyone to believe in the jewish religon.This is however a great story of a girl looking within for the courage to do what her heart desires and be true to whats right. This is a great look into learning more about someone elses beliefs and to be a more tolerant and understanding person with knowledge of others.

We enjoyed reading the books and talking about the stories that underlined them. My only hesitation is that the book includes some stereotypes that are unfortunate.

My daughter LOVES American girl books. She recieved the first book in these series as a gift for her dance recital. She started reading it right away. She loves learning about the different historical periods, and the way people lived. "I like it so much" said by my 6 year old daughter. What a great series of books this is, and Rebecca is a great addition to the series.

i was just thinking that anyone could really think any of the books were not telling the complete truth abt their culture and i do love the entire american girl series, so three stars, then.

Good story, but stereotypical...if she was an immigrant, she would not have such beautiful clothes. Also in the magazines they say her parents want her to be a teacher and she wants to be an actress. Later on, they took this out. Perhaps they should find someone who knows about the Jewish experience less "traditionally", more, almost, religiously, I guess. As a religious Jew, it sort of bothers me.

The Rebecca series has both a specific and universal impact. It accurately describes the experiences of early 20th Century Jewish Immigrants. At the same time, those challenges and experiences are similar to the other groups in that era and today. In addition, Rebecca's strong actions act as role models for today's girls. If she can act to defend the rights of workers before women even had the right to vote, then today's girls can take positions and fulfill their ambitions. Rebecca's character and values are most important. The reader's character and values are as important. They can make a difference. Maybe one of them will be president some day.

Curious no one has written a review yet on the Rebbecca, series but it is rated at 2 and a half stars. Surprising when every other American Girl book collection is in receipt of five stars. (Kaya 4) Extraordinary!!! Seems the concern about introducing a Jewish character by American Girl came true. Hate, Fear, Loathing, by uneducated simpletons who dislike anyone or thing different from themselves came true. Despicable in this era of mankind. Sad, these parents are passing the same narrow minded views of the world around them to their children. Sacred of a children's book, what hope does this society have...geez. The series is brilliantly written. The characters are identifiable to modern youth and their dreams, aspirations, family loyalties, responsibility as with all American Girl series, love, hope, determination, kindness, triumph over adversity come leaping off every page.
