    1. It's surprising that an American Girl series can fall apart so quickly. My daughter and I lost interest in this piece quicker than Donald Trumps wives after they say, "I do". Like her father, Betty is not afraid to read 7 books at once but this one was so boring it went to the back of the queue behind Stuart Little, who lives with his yuman parents. And this is harder to believe than Donald Trump's opinion on Islam after he commits treason selling military secrets to Saudi Arabia whom he claimed [...]

    2. i feel bad giving these books such low reviews. i rated the julie books low in part because i disliked the character so much & because i think presenting the 1970s as a historical era is kind of bizarre & insulting. i like josefina & i think her era of 1820s new mexico is genuinely interesting. or at least, it has the potential for interest. my problem with the josefina books is that that potential is never really realized. all of the historical characters have a "school book" about [...]

    3. I remember receiving this series for my 7th birthday, along with a Nancy Drew book and a camera that didn't work. Sadly, it took a year for me to get a camera that worked. Anyway, this series was enjyable to me at the time and that's what the 2 stars are for.

    4. So far this is my favorite of the series! It is not your typical American Girl "Learns a Lesson" school story. [Spoiler Alert!]The lesson here was more about learning about how to deal with grief, than it was about activities in the classroom. Josefina and her sisters are dealing with the loss of their mother. They have each other to lean on and hare memories, but each are grieving in their own way. The Montoya girls' maternal aunt has come to stay with them for a bit and help. Josefina sees the [...]

    5. One of the dangers of the time (and still today) is sudden flooding. In New Mexico that's rare, but it does happen and in this case a bad storm comes along and it ends up drowning lots of the family's sheep.Josefina and the other girls come up with a plan whereby they will make blankets on looms and then give them to their father who will trade the blankets for new sheep, giving them a chance to rebuild their stock.A second storyline involves one of the girl's feelings towards Tia Dolores and a [...]

    6. When a bad storm hits, Josephina and her family rush to save what they can from their rancho. However, the next morning they realize that most of the sheep had been lost in a flash flood. Faced with an economic crisis, Josephina's aunt, Tia Dolores, comes up with a back up plan for financial security. She also presents other new ideas to the family but not everyone is excited about all of these changes.I loved the American Girls Series when I was younger but I never read Josefina's series. This [...]

    7. I liked this book because Tía Dolores taught Josefina, Clara, Francisca and Ana how to read and write, so that once she left Josefina would be able to read the words on her piano music and understand it, and her sisters would be able to read. At first Francisca thought that it would make her forget their mamá, but Josefina remembered she had a memory box and had stuff that only reminded her of mamá. Their mamá died one year ago, but the writing and reading did not make them forget mamá, bec [...]

    8. Activity Ideas:• making tortillas (if not done at the first activity)• grinding corn (metate and mano stones)• weaving (using a loom)• washing, carding, spinning and dyeing wool• stringing dried apple slices• making memory books (to use as a journal, write poems and songs in)Other things mentioned in the book: sewing a dress, talking about/making plans for emergencies, mint tea, putting God’s gifts to good use, signatures & flourishes, putting a squash on porch to refuse marria [...]

    9. Tia Dolores finally arrives at the rancho, just in time for a terrible storm than drowns the family's herd of sheep, the Montoya's are now in financial strain and Tia Dolores suggests using the sheep wool to weave blankets to sell for new sheep, there are many changes at the rancho, including Tia Dolores encouraging the girls to read and write, the girls begin to wonder if these changes will separate them from the memory of their mother.

    10. This is supposed to be the "school book" to show you what school life was like back in the era of the particular book series. In the other stories (Kirsten, Samantha, and Addy), that's always been organized education. Heck, even Felicity had "manners" education in a semi-formalized setting. But here, it is more loosey-goosey. That's probably more accurate for the time period, but it felt a little off when I compared it to the other series.

    11. I thought this was a very good book. I really enjoyed rereading it. Josefina is starting to learn to grow up a little to help her family. After her Tia Dolores things started to change for the better. After the big storm her father learned he lost a lot of their flock of sheep. Her Aunt Tia Dolores came up with the idea of weaving the wool they had to make blankets and sell them so they could trade for new sheep. Plus she is teaching the girls how to read and write.

    12. Abby and I finished this book by a campfire and loved it. Josefina learns to weave on a loom and her aunt Tia Dolores also promises to teach her how to read and write. Abby said that Tia Dolores is her favorite character. I loved the descriptions about the weaving and the new dresses that the girls sew in the latest styles from Mexico City.

    13. I'm grateful that the obnoxious, materialistic American Girl Doll Company at least has the grace to hire (and hopefully, fairly compensate) decent writers for their books. The historical details feel real, and are interesting. The story is age-appropriateand the writing is good enough to read aloud without tripping up.

    14. Decided I would read this quickly before starting Esperanza Rising, which I would like to share with my class. I might use this one also, maybe as a read-aloud. Have a little bit of historical girly fiction with a contemporary work. I have not read any of the other Josefina books. My students may have, as most of them have been into the other American Girls.

    15. I love the American Girl series! As do others in this series, the time and place (1824, New Mexico) are really brought to life. The plot and characters are realistic and compelling. Always enjoy the historical notes at the end of each book. Please note: Valerie Tripp is the author of a good number of books in the series. And for good reason, I'd say!

    16. Lovely story grounded in interesting history. We are also enjoying the different personalities in the book and the growth each is experiencing. While this is a chapter book, the occasional illustrations are breathtaking. Very helpful glossary for non-Spanish speakers as well.

    17. Once again, American Girls does a great job exploring a different time and culture. I loved that Josefina learned weaving from a Native American, because it touches on yet another culture. The sibling rivalry is realistic and the history lesson at the end is good.

    18. Josefina is busy learning so much - from weaving blankets to her first lesson in reading. I like this glimpse into her world and am impressed by all the things a girl her age needed to know. Life back then was so BUSY!

    19. (2000) Alissa liked that Josefina learned how to read and write. (1999)Josefina is learning to read and write - just like Alissa.
