Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Kit's tenth birthday is fast approaching, but no one seems to be noticing. With the Depression dragging everyone down, there's no money or time for even the most modest celebration, and Kit's spirits are drooping. But then Aunt Millie arrives, bringing with her a bushel of goodwill and thrifty ideas.
Children's Literature
Kit's family is running a boarding house in an effort to just survive during the Depression in 1930s America. Kit and her family believe that they are doing everything that they possibly can to make ends meet. Because money is so scarce, Kit knows that she'll never have a party for her tenth birthday. Then, out of the blue, practical Aunt Millie pays a surprise extended visit and begins to put her common-sense ideas to work, in an effort to make things a little easier for the Kittredge's. At first, Kit and her friends think Aunt Millie is the greatest, that her ideas are genius and that maybe, just maybe, there could be a birthday party. That is, until Aunt Millie's frugal ways start to embarrass Kit. American Girls' books are inspiring and full of clever ideas, and this one is no exception. The characters are well-developed, likable and believable. The historical fiction aspect aside, these books give girls of any era positive, strong-minded role models. This is number four in the series about "America's Great Depression" and is part of the American Girls Collection. Highly recommended. 2001, Pleasant Company, $12.95 and $5.95. Ages 7 up.

    A Great Book!!!

    This book is about a girl named Kit Kitteredge, and she is living during the Great Depression. She wants a birthday party, but her family can't afford it...then Aunt Millie shows up--and wants to throw Kit a penny pincher party. But Kit says Aunt Millie is doing EVERYTHING wrong. You HAVE to read the book to find out what happens next. P.S.I found it VERY helpful when I was studying about the Great Depression

    The Penny-Picher-Party.

    I LOVED it!!!!!!!!!!:)Kit Kitteredge and her family are short on money,and she wants a party but they can't afford such party.But then Kit's Aunt Millie(She's just called that, she's not her REAL aunt!)comes.Then Aunt Millie embarassed her in front of her school!!! And even though it's so tough to have a expensive party like that,Aunt Millie makes the Penny-Picher-Party,and it's for free!!!Even though it's so cheap,it turned out that it wasn't as bad as she thought. The Almanac When Aunt Millie leaves,the Kitteredges still have the Almanac. Inside is all that Aunt Millie did to save money.So they keep it and when she leaves they use that book to save all the money till' the Depression is over.
