Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Part of the "American Girl" series, Kit lives in 1934, during the Great Depression. This tale, the third installment of Kit's story, takes place during a bleak Christmas season. Kit's father has lost his job and the family may soon lose their home. Kit's best friend, Ruthie, tries to make things better but Kit's stubborn pride keeps her from accepting Ruthie's gifts. The friendship is threatened until Kit learns to see Ruthie's point of view. Kit also helps her family through a rough spot with determination and hard work and Christmas retains some of its glow after all. A description of life during the Depression appears at the end of the book. 2000, Pleasant Company, and $5.95. Ages 8 to 11. Reviewer: Dr. Judy Rowen
