While I was at HEAV this summer and discussing our “Homeschool Girl Power” theme, Good Steward Books recommended I check out a book called “American Rebirth.” It’s an anthology of four novels, with girls as the main characters. We loved it.
If you’ve liked the “American Girl” series, where the main character lives and deals with specific time period situations, you will love this book too. It’s a great way to help your daughter “experience” parts of American History. The writing is high quality, and on a slightly higher reading level than American Girl books. As an added bonus – each story shows the female protagonist having her faith tested and learning to endure in her struggles.
Personally, I really enjoyed the books. I think they would be a great addition as you are studying American History (covers 19th century – end of Civil war, labor strikes, etc.) My oldest, age 9, also read the books. She loved that the main character was a girl, and really related to the stories. Plus, the price is a great deal, and Good Steward Books offers free shipping on all orders over $25.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed here are solely my own.
