Our American Girl Book Club traveled back to 1812 to meet Caroline last week.
Each month, our club gets together to discuss a different American Girl book. Then we make a craft that ties into the book and have a snack.
This meeting, the girls tried hardtack; because Caroline was a sailor and those tough little biscuits were a mainstay in nautical diets. (For what it counts, we let them have a cookie after they survived the hardtack.)
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 April 5 in the children’s section of our Main Branch on Mentor Avenue. The girls will be meeting Josefina.
You can register your child for the book club on our web site or by calling (440) 255-8811 ext. 221.
