Kirsten Dec 21, 2003
This story is cool. The book theme is to accept people no matter were they are from. The book is about a girl who is from Sweden and they come to america becaue thay ran out of food in Sweden. Kirsten finds an indian friend but kirsten doesent tell anyone because they think that the Indian people are mean, so kirsten keeps it as a secet.
Wonderful Feb 6, 2001
This is another in the American Girls Short Stories series about Kirsten Larson, a nine-year-old girl from Sweden, whose family has moved to frontier Minnesota of 1854. In this episode, Kirsten begins school. As she struggles to learn her lessons in a new language, she makes a new friend, Singing Bird, an Indian girl of about Kirsten's age.
This is another lesson in friendship and hard work, one masterfully told. Again, Renee Graef's illustrations are plentiful, and of a perfect style for the story. My nine-year-old daughter loves this wonderful book, and so do I.
I love it! May 15, 1999
This is a sweet tale about a little pioneer girl named Kirsten who is a Swedish immigrant and has a little difficulty speaking English- which gets trouble from her tough teacher. Things worsen as the teacher moves in with her aunt and uncle who Kirsten's family lives near and eats supper with every night. Kirsten finds her solace by running into the woods to play with her secret friend, a young Indian girl named Singing Bird. Everything in this book is great- from the stern but kindly teacher, to the friendship with the Indian girl.
A good book Nov 19, 1998
This book teaches you that you can be friends with people even if they speak another language. I've read every Kirsten book and this is one of the best!
