Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 3^-5. The year is 1934 and the name is Kit Kittredge, the newest character in the popular American Girls series. In Meet Kit, she's pounding out a newspaper on the typewriter in her room and longing for some news fit to print. As the Great Depression comes closer to home, news pours in: first, Mrs. Howard and her son come to stay with Kit's family when Mr. Howard leaves for Chicago to find work. Then Dad loses his job and Mother takes in boarders to make ends meet. Kit Learns a Lesson deals with the effects of the Depression on the household and on the community at large. The last section of each book fills in social history of the period, with clearly written texts and black-and-white photographs. Full-color paintings by Walter Rane illustrate the texts. Two short, fast-moving, and involving stories in the tradition of the series. --Carolyn Phelan"
