Mary D. reviewed Josefina's Surprise: A Christmas Story (American Girl) on
Helpful Score: 4
This was the first book of the American Girls Collection that I read to preview for my daughter who was 12 at the time. I liked it so well that I gave it to her to read, and she ended up reading the entire collection, plus the other books related to this series. The artwork really impressed me.
