Hi everyone! It’s time for part 2 of my book sale haul. I hope you enjoy!
Next I found Meet Felicity by Valerie Tripp. Felicity is a retired American Girl now, so her books are incredibly hard to find. (I found out yesterday that American Girl sadly no longer sells her books. 😦 ) I’m sure most of you know this, but just in case you don’t, Felicity is a young, horse-loving, impatient girl growing up in Virginia in 1774. In this story, she meets a horse named Penny, who is being mistreated by her owner, a mean man named Jiggy Nye. Felicity often sneaks out of her house at night so she can ride Penny in secret, without Jiggy Nye knowing. It’s a really great book that also helps you to learn about American history, too. Along with Kit, I do own the doll version of Felicity, and she is a beauty!
I also got Felicity Learns A Lesson….
….and Felicity Saves The Day! Both of these books I have never read, but I am very eager to start. The artwork in these books is just breathtaking as well!
Another book I was very lucky to find was an American Girl book called Hair: Styling Tips and Tricks for Girls. It teaches you how to take care of your hair, whether it’s curly or straight, thick or thin! Plus, the book gives you great hairstyle ideas too! My favorite is the one where they give you step-by-step directions on how to braid your hair-I’ve always had difficulty with braiding my hair, so it has really come in handy for me.
I also got Meet Addy, by Connie Rose Porter. Addy is a slave growing up in North Carolina in 1864. In this story, Addy and her momma escape from their plantation to freedom in Philadelphia-but getting there isn’t as easy as you might think! The Addy books are some of my favorites in the American Girls collection. Not only do they teach about slavery and prejudice, but they are also really thrilling and suspenseful.
I also was super lucky to find two more Addy books: Addy’s Surprise…
And Changes For Addy!
Finally, I got Samantha Saves The Day by Valerie Tripp. Ten-year-old Samantha, who lives in New York in 1904, goes on a summer vacation to the mountains. She and her new friends, twin sisters Agnes and Agatha, go on an adventure that ends with a wild storm! From the summary in the beginning of the book, this book looks great, and I can’t wait to start reading it.
Well, those are all of my book sale finds. I hope you had fun learning about each book! I go to a lot of book sales, so hopefully in the coming months, I’ll discover more books to share with you.
