any girls have dreamed that their diaries would someday be discovered and published, and that's just what has happened with this gem! Found in the attic of the house in which Anne Elizabeth Rector grew up, Anne Elizabeth's Diary is both a glimpse into what life was like for a 12-year-old girl in early-twentieth-century New York City, as well as a portrait of the early development of a young artist. Anne's wry entries are accompanied by her own exquisite illustrations, as well as sidebars that further explore details of America in 1912--from the toys (kaleidoscopes, ouija boards) to the clothes (hats with feathers, pink dresses), and much more. Fans of the Dear America and American Girl series will relish this book's rich history and detail.
