Even for someone who hasn't read any American Girl books, Welcome to Kirsten's World, 1854 is a fun glimpse into a different time. It includes such topics as arriving on the frontier from the East or another country, building and working on the homestead, social activities and courtship, life as a Dakota, toys and clothing, other immigrants on the frontier, and conflict between the Dakota and the settlers. There are plenty of visuals, each accompanied by a brief caption or explanation that invites the reader to imagine life in 1854 Minnesota. I especially enjoyed the sections about what immigrants might have brought from their homelands and how pioneers and Dakota lived from season to season.Was this review helpful?
