Family Album - Book Review

An American Girl’s Family Album from the American Girls Collection. It will be a place for you to write the memories of your grandmothers, your mothers and you.

Some things are easier to remember, but other things are easy to forget. Stories about what happened to you in the past are your history. You can write a history book because you have history. But you will want to record your history , but also ask your mother questions, and ask your grandmother questions. It will be good if you can find a quiet time to write down your memories and then talk to your mothers and grandmothers. Fill in the blanks in the book as you talk to them. Or if you want you can write up the stories later. This will allow you to have a history of what it was like for them to grow up and you will learn how things have changed for girls in America.

You won’t be able to write your history book all in one sitting. You will need the time to remember and the time to write everything down in the book. It takes time to remember all the good stories. The story-starters in the book might be able to help you to begin remembering some of those stories. When you are all finished with this book, be sure to save it so you can share it with your daughter. By then, the story of you’re growing up will be about times past.

Nearly every American family has someone who came to America from another country. Use a map or globe to find out where your ancestors came from. In the olden days, in other countries your ancestors probably had different jobs than they do today, they probably ate different foods and lived in different types of houses. Be sure to find out all that information and record it in your books. What was it like where your parents went to school? Did all ages study together in the same room? Did they have to bring a lunch? Did they have to miss school when they were needed on the farm? What kind of family holiday celebrations did they have? Did they have special Christmas traditions? What special foods that were eaten at special holidays? How was a birthday celebrated? Was there usually a party? Do they remember any special birthday gifts? A special cake? Ask the questions then record the answers.

You can use this book to gather all those special memories and write your own history book.

Note: All American Girl books are from my personal library
