Booklist Review

Gr. 3^-6. Coming on the heels of Welcome to Felicity's World, 1774 (1999), are these volumes showing the background of other American Girls. Molly's World introduces children to the social history of the early 1940s. A map of "Hometown, USA" shows such details as a rubber drive, a USO canteen, and a line outside the grocery store. Other double-page spreads focus on such topics as the Women's Army Corps, blackouts in the U.S. and air raids in England, and V-E Day. Kirsten's World follows a family of Swedish immigrants as they make their way to the frontier in the Minnesota Territory in the 1840s. Among the subjects introduced in the colorful double-page spreads are log cabin construction, Native American dress, and a trip to town. There are hundreds of illustrations, including period photographs and paintings, photographs of artifacts, and modern paintings of nineteenth-century scenes. Informative introductions preface the periods covered by the series. Other volumes are listed in Series Roundup, this issue. --Carolyn Phelan
