kitmovie.jpgKit Kittredge: An American Girl opens in movie theaters nationwide on July 2.  This movie is based on the Kit books by Valerie Tripp about a girl growing up during the Depression.  It will star Abigail Breslin as Kit.  This is the first-ever major motion picture based on an American Girl book.  If you're a fan of the American Girl series, this may be a movie you won't want to miss. 

And if you haven't read any of the American Girl books, what are you waiting for?  Visit the library and check one out.  Along with Kit, there are books about Addy, Felicity, Josefina, Julie, Kaya, Kirsten, Kit, Molly and Samantha, each from a different time period in U.S. history.  These books are a great way to learn about the past while enjoying a good story.  And it's always fun to read the book before you see the movie!
