Doll of the Month- Kit Kittredge

I really love the historical characters of American Girl so I thought it would be fun to feature a doll each month and find some inspiring things about them and their times.

We will feature some recipes, crafts and a few more fun ideas . Kit has always been my favorite doll so she is the perfect place for me to start. She was the first doll I ever got brand new from American Girl and that was only three years ago !

Kit lives in the 1930's and she dreams of becoming a writer. Her dad loses his job and he must take a new job in a different city. To make ends meet her mom takes in boarders.  Kit has many adventures with her friends and even solves a few mysteries throughout her book series.
