Reviews - What do customers think about Welcome to Samantha's World-1904: Growing Up in America's New Century (American Girls Collection)?
well done! Dec 31, 2006
Definately one of the best in the series. My favorite part of the book was the focus on child labor. It was quite appalling to see how children were abused as factory laborors (however it was tastefully done). A great addition to any children's l;brary.

I use this book in my classroom as a reference book. It contains plenty of information about toys, dolls, games, and the things that children do at different stages of American History. The students enjoy this series, as most history text books do not focus on children's activities of a time period.
