I love American Girl books, they nice to read, and learn some history. Kit is my favorite doll in the company, I love Kit's story because it's about the depression. This book is like a girl's review about the hard times that Kit face. I actually have the doll because Kit's stiry was about depression. I never really get to learn the depression times, but Meet Kit book helps me learn things that I didn't know. I would give this book an A+! I recommend it to everyone no matter if you are an adult.

1934 Meet Kit - Growing up during America's Great Depression Kit learns to value money $$$$ and understands why money matters to people and what money is used to purchase. Some sacrifices need to be made during these troubled times for Kit, her family, and people across the USA. This novel is good for a history lesson on the Great Depression in the USA, it could even explain what is happening during the present USA recession from 2008 until the present time with unemployment, homelessness, and some people's feeling of hopelessness. Kit finds hope and opportunity in the many changes that occur in her family and home. This story encourages readers to stay hope-filled and be ready to face present and future challenges.

My sister, Keira, has the doll Kit and the first two books. I read them both and they were great and well written.

I liked this book a lot. Kit's family did not have a lot of money. This story took place during the Great Depression in the United States. Kit is 9 years old and has a 16 year old brother named Charlie. Kit's mother got angry with her. Some parts of the book made me sad and some made me happy. I like this book and I think other girls will like it too.

I'm rating it 4**** because I liked it.And liked it because of the story.And I liked every single thing on it.There's no bad part in it.Except for 2 things.(1)Boarders(2)The Deppresion.WHY did they have to put that in? Why not some other historical thing?It's to DEPRESSING!!!But the boarders were bad!But if they'd cut out those parts it'd be better!Not that I didn't like the book!I loved it!I'm still reading Kit's Suprise though.I'm going to read every single American Girls book that's ever written!I've aleardy finished Samantha & Molly but there's still more!

This book is great. I would recommend this book to other kids to read. This book takes place during the time of the Great Depression in 1934. People were loosing their jobs. Kit's mom had a garden club and one lady lost her job. Kit's mom offered them to stay there. When Kit found out her dad had lost his job, she was scared. Before her dad told Kit that he had lost his job at the auto shop; Kit's brother told her before he did. Her mom was making a boarding home with nurses. The reason they were hosting a boarding house was so they could get money to pay of the house. They had a loan from the bank to pay off. That's what this wonderfull story was all about.

This book is realy great. I thought it was very close to real life during the great depression in 1934. This book was about a girl named Kit. She was a very determined little girl. When she found out her dad had lost his job at the auto shop she was worried that they would be evicted from their house. So her mother decided to start a boarding house. There was a nurse, a doctor, and a lady from the mothers garden club. They had to have a boarding house because they needed the money to keep their house. They had a loan on their house so they had to pay off the bank to keep it.

This book was a great book. It was not like one of those boring history books. Kit is a 10 year old girl who is living during the 1930's. Otherwise know as the great deppression.

Kit is a 9 year old girl living in the 1930s. I always love my grandmothers stories and Kit is almost as old as her. Meet Kit is better than any other of my grandma's stories! Meet Kit is a great book that not only girls but mothers too will like. I am a 9 year old girl and at night I always read Kit's stories with my mom and my mom likes them too! Is Meet Kit better than any of your grandma's stories? Read Meet Kit and find out for yourself!

We will be up for adoption after we have 2 or 3 queens and 2 kits who are healthy and happy. The nursury is result 2 but before you kits join pos a bio in result 3. If you wish to adopt a kit please go to result 4 to see if any kits are up for adoption. Put your bio in next result including the following: Your name gender mates name (if you are single dont bother posting anything) clan name and location and what kit/kits you would like to adopt. Remember to look through the kits bios before you decied. Also remeber to look at result four to see what kits are up for adoption.
