5.0 out of 5 stars Of Course It's about Slavery, July 21, 2006
This review is from: Welcome to Addy's World, 1864: Growing Up During America's Civil War (American Girl) (Hardcover)
This book is a great introduction to children about a difficult subject. It is well-written without being too heavy for a youngster. I am somewhat irritated at a previous review, stating that the book focuses too much on slavery and "not enough time spent on life during the Civil War." I hope others reading this book with their children realize that it is about a young black girl who is growing up in the institution of slavery. For her and actual slaves like her, this was "life during the Civil War."

Thank You for this comment. I agree completely - for a slave girl, these books really do discuss life in America during the civil war. What does that other reviewer expect?

Well written, well said comment on the book. This person is correct that the book is focused on the young black girl's life during the Civil War.
