Reviews - What do our customers think?
Josefina is a charming girl  Oct 5, 2008
Here is my confession: Josefina is my own personal American Girl doll that I bought back in junior high.

Some time ago I pulled this book out again, read it, and was immediately transported back to that time of childhood and the ways of the American Girl dolls and their stories--all in the context of American history. This reaches back to a pre-U.S. New Mexico to a sweet little girl named Josefina who is growing up with her sisters and widowed father on a ranch. She's likeable, sweet, and very much devoted to her family. I immediately fell in love with her.
The Beginning of an Excellent Series  Mar 20, 2008
My daughter (aged 4) and I have enjoyed all of the Josefina books. Though the death of her mother is a major plot point in this story (and in most of the other stories in this series), it occurs a year before the events in the book, and no details of the death are presented. The book deals primarily with the griefing process, life on a New Mexican rancho in the early 19th century, and the arrival of Josefina's aunt. All the books in the series are very informative and present the New Mexican culture in an interesting and positive way. I highly recommend the series!
This is the best book on earth!  Sep 22, 2006
This book teaches you about how a young mexican girl's life would be in 1824. This book is not boring at all. I think any child or adult would enjoy this book if they had common sense. I think this book deserves 20 stars, if that were possible.
My Daughter's Favorite  Dec 26, 2003
This is my daughter's favorite American Girl! This book is the first in a series of 6 about a 9 yr. old Hispanic girl growing up in New Mexicio in the year 1824. In the beginning it shows pictures of Josefina's friends & family. Basically, the series is about how Josefina's family survives on their 'rancho' after their mother dies. The books go into Hispanic culture and history. At the end of the book are photographs of some of the things mentioned in the story, as well as a glossary of spanish words. My 7 yr. old daughter has no problem reading these books by herself.
Josefina has dreams as high as the sky.  Jun 2, 2003
There is a young girl named Josefina. Josefina has so many dreams. She has three sisters and no brothers. Her mother died. If you like adventure and excitement this is the book for you.I think this is a great book. This book is exciting. I like this amazing book because it is adventurous.
