Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-4-This series presents the complete collection of Felicity books by Valerie Tripp which tell about the adventures of a fictional American girl in colonial Williamsburg from 1774 to 1776. Following the format of the books, each story includes a section called "Peek into the Past" containing some historical information from the time of the story. Each tape is clearly marked for side A and B. Tape endings are stated on the first side and have music on the second side, making it easy to identify for young listeners. As with the books, these tapes are an enjoyable way to introduce historical fiction to readers. Nancy A. Gifford, Schenectady County Public Library, Schenectady, NY

Great quality audiobook, very good audio clarity and engaging narration throughout.

The Felicity series has been a great way for me to introduce history and how young girls lived in the early years of America.

She read the first book, and was instantly hooked, checking other books in the series from our local library.

It seems like most people who review these books are either in the age range which the books are written for or are parents who read them with children. I'm sixteen and I read these when I was nine, but I picked them up again recently and they're just as good as I remembered. People say they're a good introduction to history, which is true in certain ways. But if you want books that simply make you happy, get ahold of these, no matter how old you are.
Regarding Felicity specifically, she's a lot of fun, although the other characters in the series are more realistic. In the first book, Felicity is able to ride an abused horse after spending only a little more than a month with the horse. I don't think a frightened horse would trust a person that quickly, no matter how kind the person is. Even so, this is a wonderful story for nine-year-old girls since so many see horses as fantasy creatures. When you read this--especially if you're an experienced horse person--remember to look at it in the context of who it's written for.
If you look at all of these books as a young child would, it's easier to see them for what they are: stories with wonderful characters who we can relate to and be envious of at the same time. In a nutshell, the entire American Girls series is an excellent interpretation of how life is and how it should be.

My 8yr. old daughter and I read these books together and found them to be a classic to treasure for childhood. The discriptive language was easy to understand and appreciate, it's a good example for beginning creative writing. We truly enjoyed the adventures and the historical facts mixed in with a young girl that my daughter could relate with and look forward to with each chapter.!

These books offer a good look into the world of a Colonist in Williamsberg, from the very first signs of conflict, to the beginnings of the Revolution, as seen through the eyes of an impatient, independant nine year old named Felicity. You will surly love these amazingly accurate stories of the adventures of Lissie and her friends as I did, and, if you are this kind of reader, may even become as familiar, and, dare I say, close to the charactres. These funny, exciting, accurate, and all around delightfull books will certainly become favorites on your book shelf!

My daughter is in 4th grade. All the girls are into these books, they are beautifully illustrated and well written. They are like history books that put you into that time and space, excellent!! My daughter is loving them and we read the history part in the back together. Very educational. I have to confess, reading through one book I was close to crying, very well written, no wonder they are keeping all the girls attention. Also I have to say that Amazon has such a great price, that you can barely get a better deal used on e-bay. Buy with confidence.

This is the first time my 7yr old daughter and I have read any of the American Girl books and we love them. The Felicity series has been a great way for me to introduce history and how young girls lived in the early years of America. It has adventure, family life and lessons.I find it sweet and my daughter always wants to see what's going to happen next. With all the TV and gadgets surrounding our children today, I would definetly recommended this series.

I am in 8th grade and these are still my favorite books. I highly reccomend these books to anyone who is interested in fictional books that are based on historical time periods. They are very interesting and you can buy a doll of Felicity, too! I have the doll and all of the books and I love them!

Format: Paperback
These books are an excellent educational tool
to show young girls (ages 6 to 12) what their life
would have been like if they had lived during
colonial times, during the revolutionary war, and
during the birth of our nation. The books are well
researched and are historically accurate. Girls
will learn what colonial children did for fun, what
their chores were, what their education was like, and what the social customs were at the time.

The main character, Felicity, is headstrong, but
also kind and loving. She reminds me a little of
the stories I've heard of Martha Washington.

I would recommend these books for young
girls today - they don't receive enough of a history education in school these days. You might find yourself, as we did, on your way to visit Williamsburg, VA to "see where Felicity lived!!"
