Why do they keep letting Valerie Tripp write American Girl doll books if she can't produce an independent young girl who isn't completely disrespectful. I support individuality and standing up for what you believe in, but being rude isn't the way to achieve it. Felicity is a headstrong young girl but she is always disobeying her parents and putting herself in danger. I don't think is a good message to send to impressionable young girls reading the American Girl franchise. I certainly don't believe a colonial young lady would act this way in the 18th century and find this was written in a 20th-21st century perspective.
In Felicity Learns a Lesson, Felicity is taught by a friendly neighbor the intricacies of being a lady and raising a household. This was typical of the time period and it was nice to read about it. They learned about the importance of tea services and manners. For the gentlewoman to stress manners so often, Felicity couldn't quite pick up that lesson. They also discussed the differences between Patriots and Loyalists which was a nice educational feature. What I really didn't like was when Felicity's classmate was being rude and implying that Felicity's father was a Patriot scumbag, Felicity's response was to be even ruder and threaten to tell the accuser's crush of her affections. I don't agree that this is the best way to solve conflict, especially when present in such an influential children's series.
I've finished this round of American Girl books from the library and I do not intend to pick up another book from Valerie Tripp. Unless the Native American girl Kaya is written by the same author, all of these dolls are spoiled and privileged brats. I'm sorry if I'm a bit salty but these books mean a lot to me. It's disheartening to see books you loved as a child through the lens of an adult. Teacups up and there's promise for some sweeter American Girl books next year!
