Upon discovering the American Girl* dolls, we also discovered their books and so far, we love them! In fact, Maddy has enjoyed them so much, she has been known to read an entire book in one day!
Besides the books on the actual dolls and their "lives",
AG has other books too -- guides, if you will!
Recently, there seems to be a little drama in 4th grade friendships.
One friend is not good friends with another and doesn't like her . . .
"Why are you playing with her and not me?"
"Why aren't you sitting next to me at lunch?"
You get the gist! Oy!

AG to the rescue!
We've found their "Guide" books to be incredibly helpful!
They give real-life examples of friend
drama and how to deal with it, what to think about, questions to ask yourself.
Besides the friend guide, we both think the manners guide is very helpful.
And guess what, these hints coming from a book, instead of a Mom,
seem to be so smart and great ideas!
