    I read this book aloud to my daughters.This is the first book in the American Girls Kirsten Series This is also our first book in any American Girl series and our first book by this author.We love reading books that take place during the 1800s time period In this book, Kirsten s family immigrates from Sweden to America in 1854 They are travelling to Minnesota to join family members already settled there Along the way, they experience some difficulties The series continues with five books.We rea [...]

    For being targeted at girls b w the ages of like 6 11, this book was surpsingly profound I mean, not to spoil anything for you, but , her best friend dies of scarlet fever as they are on their way immigrating over from Sweden to America to make a better life for themselves A dingy long cabin in Minnesota if I recall And besides the sob factors, it also delves into a fair amount of cultural exposure That s pretty heavy reading material for a kid This is probably one of the most emotionally impact [...]

    Good I d recommend a little older than 6 7 My girls didn t want to continue after the death.

    Okay so I kind of feel like reading these American Girl Books are cheating because I can read them like super fast but my sister just got the Kirsten doll so I decided to start reading her books to know if I want to slowly buy her from her So I started to read this book and I actually really enjoyed it So far I have only read all of Felicity s books and the first two of Josefina, I am enjoying Josefina s books but I just really like the colonial times which is when Felicity is set so I think tha [...]

    This review is also posted on my blog view spoiler I ll pretense this by saying, this is a children s book It is not going to be the same length or difficulty level as a standard adult novel, but in no way will this impact the complexity or quality, so if you go into reading children s books with this in mind, then you ll find them much easier to enjoy.Now With that said I remember reading and LOVING the American Girl books when I was a kid, and I recently had the idea to re read and re experien [...]

    I just finished rereading a bunch of my old childhood books I blitzed through the first four Kirsten books Meet Kirsten, Kirsten Learns a Lesson, Kirsten s Surprise, and Happy Birthday Kirsten I have this thing about rereading books that I haven t read since I was 10 or younger in one way, it s fantastic because you can relive those moments when you were first falling in love with characters or, in my case, historical fiction However, rereading these books can also be really really disappointing [...]

    Kirsten has been sailing to Minnesota for a long time When she finally gets to American to live with her cousins, she finds out that school is really hard She also finds that English is a lot harder than Swedish On top of that, Kirsten and her family are still homesick Can Kirsten and her family be happy in America

    I read this to see if it would be a good fit for our homeschool elementary history co op class I loved it and will definitely be using it There is so much to go on for extending learning geography, cultures, new experiences, history, friendships, tragedy, priorities, overcoming fears, family, and I read some of the reviews before reading the book and was worried about the friend dying being too heavy a concept to teach but I think it was handled well, was definitely a reality for pioneers, and [...]

    Literally read it in less than 20 minutes at the bookstore today I still love the American Girl books and think they have a lot of value for young girls It s kind of funny how much complicated they seemed when I was younger, when now I can apparently just breeze right through them and yet spoiler Marta s death still managed to pack a bit of a punch I should have read the other two that were in the box set I found this in, because I was never really well acquainted with Kirsten s story and I m c [...]

    Meet Kirsten tells the story of a nine year Swedish girl making the long journey from Sweden to Minnesota in America with her family in 1854 Kirsten, Mama, Papa, Lars, and Peter experience many hardships on their journey from the beginning on the small ship they took to cross the Atlantic Space was very tight and many people got sea sick When they finally landed in New York, Kirsten finds herself lost after going into the city with Papa and Lars She cannot speak English yet and has a very diffic [...]

    Pretty excited that even though I m reading this aloud at bedtime I was getting the laundry and walked in the room to see my kid picking it up and reading on her own I won t give up hope, but I think I m coming to a realization that my child won t be as a voracious reading child as I was I was an introverted, shy, passive kid that thrived on doing what I was told Ellie is crazy, active, kinetic always needing to move and sing and dance , creative, expressive, moody child that doesn t even like b [...]

    I liked this book better than the Felicity one, tbh It felt real to me, although also profound sobering This is a children s book, targeted at the upper grades of elementary school grades 3 6 Kirsten s family is traveling from Sweden for hopes of a better life in America, where there is already some family in Minnesota to help them get settled There is some culture shock for Kirsten to deal with, but it is better with the presence and support of her extended family There is still some sadness [...]

    Reviewed by Whitney Shooting Stars ReviewsMeet Kirsten begins when Kirsten and her family travel from Sweden to America by ship A lot of things happen to her along the way, and she must stay brave for her family This book was not as good as some of the other American girl series, but I liked it I was saddened by some things that happened in it, but I could never really connect with Kirsten Other than that I did like this one, and I look forward to reading about her in other books.

    And so after not liking Josefina, we tried this one Talk about depressing Her friend dies, horribly, of cholera Maybe there are 8 year old girls that like to read about things like this, but mine is not one of them What a way to sell dolls Yikes Stopped after the cholera chapter.

    I just read this for my Reading challange, LOL

    I really liked this book reading about Kirsten s scary and dangerous adventure crossing the seas exploring New York and experiencing good and bad things she never expected to experience It was fun, it was sad, it was fascinating Kirsten and her family have been traveling for three months from Sweden to America to land in New York ready to travel to Chicago and then onto Minnesota The trip was long and her Mama was seasick the whole journey When they get to New York Kirsten gets lost and has to f [...]

    I read this book for two reasons nostalgia and for my Reading Challenge I wasn t sure if I ever finished this book when I was collecting American Girl dolls so I read it now and it was a pretty decent book I mean, yes, the books I actually read are better but for being less than 60 pages, it had a pretty good storyline I plan to finish this series and then continue with the books I normally read afterwards I would recommend this book to elementary school children even if it is a little sad since [...]

    Kirsten s story was one of my favorites when I was younger, but unfortunately, this first book just didn t stand up to time for me I love her story once she reaches the west, but before that, it all just seems so rushed There s so much that could have been done with their initial arrival to the states.I m definitely going to keep rereading Kirsten s series though Her stories remind me of so many of the stories my grandmother tells me of her own childhood.

    My four year old daughter seemed to enjoy listening to me read this story I still don t think she comprehended everything in the book, but the questions I did ask her she knew the answers to Some big talking points for a four year old time period, money, death , but also a good time for conversations She wanted to read this because of has the doll, but I don t think she would have been interested in the book otherwise.

    As a little girl I was opposed with American Girl I still really enjoy the stories American Girl really got me into reading I started American Girl when I was 9 I loved them ever since.

    Kirsten is a brave girl I cannot imagine going through the hardships she and the people around her experience.

    I love Kirsten s story she goes through a lot throughout the series, but she always tries to keep a good and cheerful heart.

    Review is part of my reminiscence on books which influenced me most, found at A Writer Reads.

    A childhood favorite Like I would rate this anything but 5 stars.

    I reread this as part of a book challenge I loved the American Girl books as a kid definitely the start of my love of historical fiction.

    I really liked this book because it was very interesting It was a little scary, but just a little because they were on a ship and the sea had thrashing and crashing waves.

    I like to put myself in other peoples shoes.

    Reading level 2nd grade and up Graef uses a couple of small illustrations throughout the story I liked how the pictures were in color, but they defiantly appeared to be out of the 1800 s It looks like the pictures were drawn with colored pencils, and most of the colors used are light shades of tans, yellows, and natural colors The actual size of the book is neat because it s wider than it is tall, making it easier to hold, and easier to fit in your hands The paper size is also thicker probably t [...]

    How old were you when you first read this book What was your first impression of it Has that changed on subsequent re reads I was probably around 8 or 9 when I first read Meet Kirsten I liked it, but it never made me want the doll I still like it But it is a very introductory book into her life It moves fast, but that is natural given the nature of the trip and if it was completely detailed it would be dull and repetitive What did you like best about the books What surprised you Was there any pa [...]
