  2. Another cute installment in the series, designed to teach kids the benefit of working together I particularly liked this book when I was a kid because it was interesting to see how school was different for kids in the 40 s, and because I found the discussion about war efforts fascinating, since we never had anything like that when I was growing up This generation, on the other hand, has parents and siblings and other relatives fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, so many young readers will no doubt [...]

  3. This is definitely my least favorite of any ag book I thought Molly was pretty ok, but her friends were whiny and they griped the entire time She s obviously a 3rd wheel to them And it seemed to go nowhere fast the story Maybe Molly just doesn t appeal to me like Rebecca, or Felicity do, but still

  4. Night time read a chapter each night with my 6 year old Cute story with a good message Simple and sweet.

  5. Not going to rate the rest of these, but I decided to read at least the first 3 today, because book 3 is a Christmas story Same feelings as with the first I didn t remember the historic notes part at the ends of the story, telling what was really going on during the time that the story takes place I ll need to collect of the American Girl books, I think.

  6. This book is about what people were doing during World War II as far as trying to help the war effort from their schools The various classes at Molly s schools are coming up with different methods to help, things like scrap metal drives and sewing things that soldiers can use.When the decision is made on what Molly s class will do, Molly disagrees and ends up trying to come up with a project of her own that she and two of her friends can do They end up involved in the original project, though, a [...]

  7. This is the second installment of Molly s American Girl series It was my least favorite of hers but it was mostly because I thought she was being a huge brat throughout most of the story I get way it was written that way though It was a good lesson for young girls to learn Molly s class are given an assignment They must come up with a project to help the war effort since the story takes place during WWII Another girl comes up with a good idea and Molly hates it Mostly because of the girl who tho [...]

  8. I liked this book because Molly was going to school and there was a competition to see who could do stuff like knitting socks The girls decided to knit socks even though Molly did not know how to knit She was not the one who made the decision The girl who made the decision was holding a knitting bee at her house Molly and her two friends thought that knitting was too hard, so they decided to collect bottle caps They went to peek at the girl s house when they were doing the knitting bee, and her [...]

  9. When I was younger I loved this series I must say that things have change and not that I do not like this book I still love it but it is a very simple book reading, so it might not be challenging enough for some readers It is a fictional book I must say that it does a good representation of the era that Molly lived in This gives the book a sense of realism almost like the book Numbering the Stars.This girl is full of adventure and life but also has to face the realities of her life as a student [...]

  10. I read this book in like 5th grade, remember liking it This is the Molly book w activism, since they have a class project to do their part for the country at war The boys in class do recycling aluminum foil or rubber band ball I forgot, they both seem like cool recycling ideas The girls do some knitting At first it was knitting socks, which could help soldiers than one big quilt which they ended up making But I was still blown away by the thought of girls in 3rd or 4th grade being able to knit [...]

  11. This review is from the perspective of a mother I am reading the books to decided when they are age appropriate for my daughter.Ah, Molly A theme of her books is that she wants everything to stay the same, but she wants to be different, to stand out in the crowd This time, the assigned group project to help the war effort isn t different enough, so she coaxes her friends into going off on their own, and they all learn a few lessons about teamwork along the way.The ending wraps things up a little [...]

  12. This second book in the Molly, American Girl series was another enjoyable quick read about a young girl living in America during World War 2 These books do a nice job of showing what life is like at home while loved ones may be away, rationing, and creative ways in which people helped at that time with the war effort This was a wonderful discussion book, allowing my daughter and I to talk about how people and communities came together, and if we think people today would assist at that same level [...]

  13. I thought Molly Learns a Lesson was alright My favorite part was whenever they class are thinking about what to do for a school project It was boys against girls and the boys collected tinfoil balls and would collect so many tinfoil balls that it would be six feet wide The girls however, were supposed to knit socks but it was going to be so hard to knit socks and it would take up so much time that they wouldn t be able to finish But all the girls get together and they made a quilt to send over t [...]

  14. Molly has always been my least favorite of the American Girls which is a shame because the time period always interested me It just annoys me that she can t be a team player.ead she has to take her friends off to do a different project just because she didn t like the one that everyone else had voted on view spoiler Ok so maybe she was right about the project but that doesn t mean that she was being a good leader view spoiler hide spoiler hide spoiler

  15. Molly is in third grade and her class is starting an important project to aid int he war effort, whichever class project is the best will be in the paper The girls come up with the idea to make socks for soldiers, but Molly hates this idea, and not only because Alison came up with it Molly decides to come up with her own project Can Molly learn how to work together Will their class project win

  16. As the grandfather of a girl named Molly I am behooved to read this series I enjoyed this second book in the Molly than the first, because the description of the classroom brought back childhood memories Just to be clear, I am not that old, but there was some carryover from the 40s to the 60s I am excited about reading the whole series, and excited about buying the American Girl s Molly doll for my granddaughter before they discontinue making it.

  17. This book, I thought, was VERY funny Well, I mean part of it The part that I was was really funny was when Molly s brother, Ricky, sprayed MOLLY and HER FRIEND with the hose and dumped a bucket of water on them Now that, I found really funny I hope you can read this book so you can enjoy the same laughter I had.

  18. Molly is a total jerk in this one but that s ok, because she really is trying to make a point Like most kids, she knows what she knows but is unable to express it convince others have any detailed diplomatic skills That s what she s learning, and it s one of those soft skills that are so hard to learn Tripp does a good job of making that problem easy to understand for a younger audience.

  19. In this story, Molly and her class are involved in a school competition to help the war effort Molly struggles a bit with jealousy, and doesn t want to do the project her class decides on But in the end, the girls make something much better by working together than they would have by going it on their own.

  20. Molly learns a lesson about working well with others She and the girls in her class make a knitted blanket for the war effort Abby couldn t believe that all those nine year old girls knew how to knit When I told her that I could teach her how to knit, she said no thanks Times have changed

  21. Molly and her friends continue their adventures in this story In school, they work on the Lend a Hand project to help the war effort WWII and learn that when they work together, great things can be accomplished.

  22. My first grader really enjoyed the whole Molly series The content really kick started some good discussions about life during WWII The historical aspects definitely help expose children to some additional perspectives on life in different generations.

  23. I must say, I totally loved this book I like Molly because shes not one of those.lemme thinkrfect, popular girls that you hear a lot about in books I would reccomend this to anyone, any age or gender I couldnt put it down

  24. I prefered the humor of Meet Molly, but this book was pretty good, too It waas nice seeing how communities supported their loved ones at war Mrs Gilford s homemade bread smells yummy, even through the pages.

  25. I think this book teaches you a lot I think the charaters really good because the use dialog, the author makes you feel like you are in the book If you want to feel like your in the book i would read this book

  26. I have to admit that I really liked this one It is relevant today because of all the wars going on It is great to read how kids back then were doing the same things they are doing now Bottle caps are kind of a past thing, but the blanket and raising awareness over all is very relevant.

  27. I thought this was a good book I enjoyed rereading it Molly has a tough time in school not being the smartest like Alison, but she does have a good heart I liked her idea of collecting bottle caps and her idea for making a blanket was great Her lesson was to work together.
