The Molly series from American Girl is one that the girls can really relate to, as she is in a more modern (WWII) time period. Book Five, Molly Saves the Day, is about summer camp. It's fabulous!
One of my favorites- a staple for any young girl!
Great Book for young readers!
Great for your American girl collector or school agers
My daughter loves this series!
n 1944, during World War 2, loved ones were away fighting the war, gas was rationed and families couldn't travel far. They saved their gas for necessary trips. Families couldn't even see their relatives during the holidays.
In 1944-1945 it was common for parents to send their children to summer camp. The children could get away from the stress of everyday life, and enjoy the outdoors.
Molly and her friends Linda and Susan are very excited to go to camp Go-on-Again. They have many challenges to learn at camp. Molly finds that she is very afraid of swimming underwater. Susan is having difficulty paddling a canoe, and Linda is afraid of bugs. When the camp girls are divided into teams and challenged to capture the flag, Susan and Molly are placed in a canoe together. Susan has difficulty rowing and she loses her ore, when both girls reach for the ore, the canoe tips over, causing the girls to dunk under water.
Molly and Susan reach shore, only to find that their whole team has been captured by the other team, and the jailer is their own best friend, Linda.
Will Molly and Susan get away? Will Linda capture her own best friends? How can Molly and Susan rescue their whole team? Will the girls ever be able to resume their friendship?
