World War II turns Molly's family upside down. While her father is away, war breaks out on the McIntires' home front. Hardcover edition.
Meet Molly, Hardcover
I wish I had bought this from cbd!EVERY book store sells this for $12.95 minimum! I bought this for my daughter age 5 1/2 who hates to read, but fell in love w/ this at a bookstore chain, along w/the paper dolls(also MUCH cheaper at CBD!) To be honest , I have Never been so impressed w/ a "secular" book series, & cannot believe how well done it is! This is Actually educational reading, taking you through World War 1, making you feel as if your there. There are great illustrations & maps, Molly's dad is a doctor in the war, they talk about the "homefront" & explain all of these casual words of that time, & the clothes they wore-such as introducing "seperates", a little girl who was sent w/ others from Europe to escape the war & came to live w/ them , & how Molly feels about that. But it is a story. I have never seen anything like this & it's long overdue! Just Wonderful ! You MUST buy it for ANY little girl age 5 & up( even for yourself!) along with the paper dolls -(they're only 4.50 here at CBD- You'll pay MUCH more anywhere else, I did !) Enjoy & read it together !!
