Item description for Kirsten Saves the Day: A Summer Story (American Girls Collection) by Janet Shaw, Jeanne Thieme & Renee Graef...

Ten-year-old Kirsten is proud and excited when she finds a bee tree full of honey, but she exposes herself to great danger by trying to harvest the honey by herself

Publishers Description
Kirsten welcomes summer when it finally comes to Minnesota. Even chores, such as catching fish for dinner, seem like play. One day while she's fishing, Kirsten leaves the stream to explore the woods. There she finds a treasure--a bee tree packed with honeycombs. Kirsten knows Papa could use the honey to trade for things the family needs. So she decides to surprise him by bringing the honey home. Kirsten asks her brother Peter to help her. But they don't know that bears are after Kirsten's treasure, too.

Reviews - What do customers think about Kirsten Saves the Day: A Summer Story (American Girls Collection)?

Kirsten Saves the Day: A Summer Story Book Review  Apr 27, 2007
I read the book KIRSTEN SAVES THE DAY: A SUMMER STORY for my class book review. This book is great. It is about a ten-year-old girl named Kirsten, and her adventures in the summer of 1854. In the beginning, Kirsten, her brother, and their dog walked through the woods to a river. Her mother asked her to catch nine fish for dinner. Kirsten only caught one fish and that is when the adventure began.

I learn some interesting facts. Trees were turned into log cabins, barns, fences, and farm tools. Also, settlers had to store enough food to eat in the winter. They often washed dishes outside and they ate outside, too.

I would recommend this book for three reasons. First, if you like interesting historical fiction books in 1854, then you will like KIRSTEN SAVES THE DAY: A SUMMER STORY. Second, Kirsten was very adventurous on her journey in the woods. Finally, Kirsten finds a surprise in the woods.

Fun and Educational  Mar 15, 2003
My 8-year-old absolutely loves these stories. She can't wait to get to the next one and they help her to see what life was like in Kirsten's time (late 1800's). Your little girl will love them, and I love that there is absolutely NO questionable material in these books. I don't have to worry about questionable material or boy crazy stuff that my daughter is too young to deal with yet!
An excellent book  Apr 16, 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. Kirsten's first Fourth of July is coming up, and her family will be going into town. There are many things they need, and everyone hopes that they can raise enough money to buy them. A miracle seems to beacon to Kirsten when she discovers a bee tree brimming with sweet (and valuable) honey. When she decides that she need not inform her parents, that she and her little brother can collect the honey, she learns a valuable and potentially fatal lesson.

Once again, Janet Shaw produces a wonderfully entertaining story, with a valuable lesson. Such wonderful stories, with such excellent illustrations! This is an excellent book, and a worthwhile addition to your library.

[For those parents interested in reading historical fiction about Swedish immigrants, please consider reading The Emigrants series by Vilhelm Moberg.]
