Reviews - What do customers think about Welcome to Josefina's World 1824: Growing Up on America's Southwest Frontier (American Girls Collection)?

awful waste of time!  Dec 20, 2008
I never received the book!! Following is the lame excuse I received from the seller after a month of waiting and no communication from her in spite of a claim to the contrary:

"Yes, I did respond to your email! I never received an email from this site in the first place that the book had been sold!. I also never sent a confirmation that the book was sold and would be shipped on a certain date! You are supposed to already have a refund on the cost.I am very sorry for the inconvience that this has caused you. The book is no longer available. All I can do is offer my apologies in the matter."

I would not do business with this vendor again and warn anyone who would to check that this site got the "confirmation the book had been sold." Baloney!!

What a World!  Jun 7, 2002
"Josefina's World" is an excellent supplement to the Josefina chapter books and short stories. Although each chapter book and short story has a section in the back with historical information that is relevant to the story in the book, "Josefina's World" is a colorful, informative historical overview with the kinds of information that readers will most want to know. There are wonderful cut-away pictures of Josefina's rancho and of a pueblo, which many children will find appealing. The experiences of birth, childhood, and marriage are covered along with fashion, cleanliness, faith, health and medicine, and the importance of the role of the community. Stories of real people of the time and the retelling of the folk tale of "La Llorona" supplement the text. Historical information slips in with the coming of the Spanish, the blending of Pueblo and Spanish cultures, the significance of trade from Mexico City and the Santa Fe Trail, and the coming of the Americans in the mid-nineteenth century. The text is divided into short sections that are easy to read and full of accurate, important historical information. The pictures show delightful representations of colonial New Mexico and even someone who does not read the text will get a comprehensive view of Josefina's World.
My 9 year old daughter loves it!  Mar 30, 2000
Great book full of wonderful pictures and great historic information. My daughter can spend hours exploring the book time and time again.
