As an adult reader, and avid AG collector Caroline books are one of the best children's book series I have read in a long time.
Caroline is brave, strong, and compassionate character. A brilliant role model for young girls-you will love her. Whether she is passing secret embroidered messages, or sinking a boat, she is a strong, and sensible character. I really think AG is the only publisher that has female characters not obsessed with boys, relationships and romance.
Her mother is one of the most well drawn mother characters, and has a very close relationship to her daughter. You will love Mrs. Abbott -she overseas the running of the Abbott shipyard, raising Caroline, taking in boarders, and ready to stand her ground (twice)in the face of the British invasion.
Caroline's story takes place in Sackett's Harbor, NY and the war is as much as a character as any other in this series. Throughout the first five books, Caroline witnesses the arrest of her father and seizing of his ship by the British, two battles, and the British blockade. It's not like the Felicity, Addy, and Molly books were the war is some far off event.
American girl has a winner with the series. Kathleen Ernst did an excellent job in writing Caroline and the war of 1812 to life. Her writing is entertaining, educating, and enjoyable. Not only did I read it from the library, I will be purchasing this set for my personal library.
It was very enjoyable, thrilling, and a great read.
I ordered the books to have here and the doll was a bonus for the price on amazon. Much less than the AG sight. Now we both have a set of books and I have the mini doll she has the 18 in Caroline. We Skype and read together. We are both doll lovers and avid readers. She is enjoying the stories and it's fun to read them together, albeit long distance via Skype. The stories are age appropriate for her and they really are well written for the short series and basically true to the time in history when "Caroline was
an 11 year old girl growing up in 1812." We both like history so it's a three-fer... Quality doll, good reading, interesting educational history and as a plus, I get time together with my grandchild, even though long distance, what a kick. She holds her Caroline while we read and my mini Caroline is right by me. How fun to revert back to child hood on occasion! It's a good thing for a good value.
Caroline spent the entire series in an effort to stay steady. I think it would have been poetic for him to give it back to her and acknowledge how far she's come. Before the war, the top represents Caroline as a child who cannot stand on her own, wobbles this way and that, and seeks only fun. After the war, Caroline blossoms into a young lady, independent and strong. By giving the top back to her, Caroline could have realized her own personal growth and would have cherished it as a keepsake. The author missed out on a glaring literary theme and should have tied up the loose ends with a touching father-daughter moment.
All in all - Great book set!
