Changes For Molly Aug 21, 2006
I thought that this book was great. This book is about a young girl named Molly in 1944 that is when WWII was. Molly's father is a doctor for wounded soldiers in England. The most important part of this book was when Molly was chosen to be Miss Victory in the big Red Cross show. She was very excited because now she can prove to her father that she had changed. Then she wasn't able to do that because she got sick. While she was at home in bed resting, a certain someone walked in the door...
Can't wait Dec 28, 2005
I have read the othre books in this series and I can't wait to read this one!
"Changes for Molly" is the Best Molly Book Nov 21, 2003
Molly lives in 1944 and wishes to be Miss Victory in the tap dance recital. Her older sister helps with her hair and when it comes time for auditions, Molly takes off her glasses because she wants to look the part of a star.
MOLLY GETS THE ROLE!
Right before the big show, Molly catches a cold. She can't be Miss Victory. However, on the day of the show, Molly gets a surprise that is better than tapping in the sparkling Miss Victory costume.
This is the best Molly book.
The last chapter of the book explains what it is like in 1944 with the war and the efforts on the home front.
My favorite Molly book! Sep 4, 2003
This is another in the American Girls series about Molly McIntire, a ten-year-old girl living on the home front during World War 2. In this book, Molly gets the good news that the U.S. Army is reassigning her father stateside. To make matters even better, she has a real shot at winning the starring role in a dance production being put on at the local Veterans' Hospital. But, Molly wants to look her best for the role, and she wants to show her father how mature she is. So, Molly begins a war of her own against her straight and unattractive hair, but all wars have their casualties...
I must say, I now think that this is my favorite Molly book! The story is uplifting with a happy ending, and the illustrations are excellent. My twelve-year-old daughter is a fan of Molly, and so am I. We both highly recommend this book, and this series to you!
the best Molly book... Nov 15, 2001
When Molly hears the news that her dad is coming home, she gets excited, because he'll be home in time to see her dance in the "Hooray for the U.S.A.!" show. But she feels disappointed when she reads the letter her dad sent later on, because her dad failed to mention how she's changed. So, now Molly is determined to to get curly hair in addition to winning the role of Miss Victory. Molly gets the Miss Victory role and manages to get curls--but then she falls ill. Molly is sure things couldn't get worse, but a surprise awaits Molly. The last book in the Molly series, I thought that this one was one of the best in the entire series.
