    Samantha Is Really Easy!

    All of the American Girl books are really good,but,(truthfully),all of the American Girl are just to easy for me.I'm in the second grade at Webster Elementry School.My reading level is Level P.My teacher is Mr. Spahr.My reading level is so high that my reading group was very hard to form.Mr.Spahr has a library in our classroom.I can find alot of the American Girl books in his library.I reacently read Meet Samantha,and it has very high teachnology.But it doesn't have very hard words.But I liked the book.

    I Also Recommend:

    Samantha's Introduction

    A fun quick read about Samantha and the world she grows up in. The story itself was really unremarkable, even viewing from a childs perspective. The details and additional historical information offered in the book are priceless. There are little images and descriptions of unique turn of the century clothes, homes, attitudes and social beliefs depicted in a fun educational way.Samantha comes across as too tom-boyish and too submissive for some of the lessons to be believable. Her surrounding cast is weak in development, but complimentary to her story. A good book to get girls interested in reading and exploring the past.

    I really really really enjoyed this book!

    It's an awsome book. Samantha is a great role model and her books are interesting to read. I like them because they catch your attention the very first sentence you read. I really enjoyed this book. I think all girls from 9 to 12 will enjoy it.

    Samantha Parkington: Victorian Beauty

    Meet Samantha is exciting, and an incredible pleasure to read. I hope that the new book, Nellie's Promise, will increase the amount of readers in the Samantha series because I know that Samantha is the most adored girl in the American Girl series.
