Our American Girl Book Club traveled to New York City in 1914 to meet Rebecca Rubin earlier this week.

They saw the time and city through her eyes—as a newcomer whose Jewish family had just emigrated from Russia.

On the first Wednesday of each month, our club gets together to discuss a different American Girl book. Then we make a craft that ties into the book, character or era. For example, this month, we decorated Matryoshka dolls like the kind Rebecca plays with.

If you have a child who likes the American Girl books or dolls, then she can join the fun. They can even bring their dolls with them, if they like. (Of course, the dolls aren’t required.)

Our next meeting is 4 p.m. on Oct. 5 in the children’s section of our Main Branch on Mentor Avenue. The girls will be meeting Kit.

You can register your child for the book club on our web site or by calling (440) 255-8811 ext. 221.
