Portraits of American Girlhood is a wonderful curriculum based on the American Girl books and is written by Cindy Sotelo of Albuquerque, New Mexico.

I am in no way affiliated with Portraits of American Girlhood. I began this blog as a safe way to have lots of great resources that go along with the books and curriculum in one place, reducing the time for parents to look for information on-line so they can spend more time learning together as a family.

I began this blog in June of 2010 and it will probably take me a year to complete it. I hope that you find it helpful; however, if you come across any links or videos that are questionable or no longer working, please leave me a comment so I can make the necessary changes.

Here are the American Girls we have studied so far...
