Our American Girl Book Club met Molly McIntire this month.
The girls traveled back to an era of victory gardens and rubber rationing, and they learned how American girls lived during World War II.
On the first Wednesday of each month, our club gets together to discuss a different American Girl book. Then we make a craft and play games that tie into the book, character or era.
For example, in November, we discussed how the McIntires conserved because of resource shortages during World War II. So we made sit-upons (a homemade waterproof seat) using recycled newspaper.
The girls also made leis for their doll.
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 Dec. 7 in the children’s section of our Main Branch on Mentor Avenue. The girls will be meeting Julie.
You can register your child for the book club on our web site or by calling (440) 255-8811 ext. 221.
