"Rebecca's Story Collection" is the story of a Russian-Jewish girl,Rebecca Rubin,living in the Lower East Side of New York City in the year 1914. Through Rebecca's eyes the reader is able to experience the historical/cultural events of 1914: immigration through Ellis Island, the outbreak of World War I,the Jewish celebrations of Shabbos, Hannukah, Passover and Bar Mitzvah,the silent movie era, a trip to Coney Island, sweatshops and labor reform. Jacqueline Dunbar Green has done an excellant job of capturing the essence of the time period in her storytelling. The only negative comment I have is that American Girl did not publish a "Welcome to Rebecca's World 1914, Rebecca's Craft Book or Rebecca's Cook Book" to accompany the storyline as they had done with previous historical American Girl figures. Instead American Girl has published "Rebecca Just for Fun."
