American Girl Book Club meets Molly

Abby tears newspaper to stuff her sit-upon.
You know our American Girl Book Club? The one where kids make everything from kites to rag dolls to dreamcatchers and talk about classic American Girl books?

Well, it just got easier for your child (or children) to join. We’ve now stretched the age range so kids from six to 12 years old can get in on the fun.

Our American Girl Book Club meets on the first Wednesday of each month to discuss a different American Girl book and make a new craft.
Claire ties a bit of string onto the end of her bookmark.
This week, the girls met Molly and made a pair of crafts: a sit-upon (a kind of pillow) and a special bookmark.

They also learned how to dance the hula like Molly and her friend on Halloween.

If you have a child who likes the American Girl books or dolls, then he or she can join the fun. They can even bring their dolls with them, if they like. (Of course, the dolls aren’t required.)

Our next meeting is 4 p.m. on Dec. 2 in the children’s section of our Main Branch on Mentor Avenue. The girls will be meeting Julie.

You can register your child for the book club on our web site or by calling (440) 255-8811 ext. 221.
The girls practice their hula.
