As America celebrates the bicentennial of the second war for independence, I wanted to introduce you to the newest historical character from AmericanGirl, Caroline Abbott. On September 4, Caroline's debut will inspire today's girls with stories of courage and kindness as she becomes a true hero by giving of herself without expecting anything in return. Caroline is a 9-year-old girl growing up near Lake Ontario (Sackets Harbor) during the War of 1812.
It's exciting to have a character whose story takes place exactly 200 years ago and shows girls today how to stay steady and believe in themselves during difficult times. My daughter loves American Girl doll books. We read them together and these books are an amazing asset when teaching history while homeschooling.
