My daughter is a American Girl fanatic. She adores the American Girl collection, from the dolls to the books and everything in between. So when there are new dolls that are fixing to come out, she likes to be one of the first to know about the new girl and one of the first to have the doll as well. We live in Texas, so when we found out that the 2013 Girl of the Year was going to be a country girl, my daughter knew that this new girl would make for a perfect addition to her collection! She was so right too, when Saige arrived, one of the first things my daughter noticed and right away loved was her hair. She loved how long her hair was and how it was braided to the side, which is a style that my daughter has been going with lately. She also noticed right away that Saige had these adorable boots on, and that Saige’s fashion style was a lot like hers! One of the first things that had to be done, which has been a tradition since Estrella first started collecting American Girl dolls and books, was to read Saige’s story, so that she could get to know her and learn about her. Estrella loves art and she also loves animals, which includes horses, and when Estrella started reading Saige’s book, she really liked that Saige has the same interests and passions that she does. I love that even though Estrella seems to always find something that she can relate to when it comes to the girls in the American Girl line, she was able to right away relate to and bond with Saige. Saige is a girl full of passion for the things that she loves and she uses that passion with her creativity to show that anyone can make a difference! So if you have a little country girl or a lover of the American Girl dolls, then you are going to want to add this years girl of the year, Saige, to your collection!!
Along with Saige, we were also sent the awesome book, The Care & Keeping of You- The Body Book for Girls. This was the perfect book for my daughter and her friends to read. They are at that age where they have questions and things are beginning to change in their bodies. My daughter also has older step sisters, so when we began to read this book, she pointed out that there were things that the book talked about that her sisters are going through. This book goes over a variety of things that affect girls from what to eat, bras, hair care, to pimples and periods. We found this book to be a great one to have and to share with other girls as well.
Well, since the wonderful people from American Girl love sharing what is new with my daughter and I as well as my readers, they would like to send some great books to one of my readers!! One lucky reader will get the new book about this years girl of the year Saige as well as one of the Express Yourself books for girls!!
