Molly Learns A Lesson Jul 5, 2006
Molly is a lively nine-year-old girl growing up on America's Home Front in 1944. Her father is serving as a doctor in England and Molly is always willing to help with the war effort. When her teacher challenges the class to do a "Lend-A-Hand" project in one weekend to help soldiers, a snobby girl named Alison comes up with the brilliant idea to knit a hundred pairs of socks! Molly thinks this idea is stupid and decides to strike out with her own project: collecting bottle tops. But that turns out to be harder then she expected. Can the whole class find a way to work together before the project falls apart?
I liked this book because it uses the wartime idea of being allies to teach an important lesson about friendship. The characters are three-dimensional and are a joy to read about. I highly recommend this book, and the whole Molly series, to any girls interested in WWII historical fiction.
I love this book !!! Jun 20, 2006
It`s a great book ! Any girl 7 and up or older should have this book. I`m nine years old and Molly is around that age. I love it ! You also should get the whole Molly seris. I love it !
Another great Molly story! Feb 25, 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. Molly's school is having a "Lend-a-Hand Contest" to help the war effort, and to teach the children about working together. But, when one girl volunteers the third grade girls to knit socks, Molly cringes-she knows how hard it is to knit a sock, and she wants out. So, grabbing hold of two friends, Molly abandons the project and sets out on her own. In this book, Molly learns a lesson about working together...but in a completely different way than her teacher imagined!
As with the other Molly stories, this one is great! The story is very entertaining, and gently teaches an important lesson. My 11-year-old daughter is a big fan of Molly, and so am I. We both highly recommend this book to you!
Pretty Good Book Feb 3, 2000
When Molly finds herself in a corner, she tries to get out of it. Do you think sewing is easy? Well Molly thinks it's easy until she tries to sew, but she can't do it. So Molly thinks of an idea. This story is probably set in the 1940's, like in World War 2. When you read this book you will probably like it. You will figure out what Molly does to save her friends. I would not think a 14 year old boy would like it, but an 8 year old girl would probably like it a lot. It's pretty good when you get into it!
