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...

Changes for Samantha - Week 6


n. A foretelling; a previous declaration of a future event; prophecy. The fulfillment of the predictions of the prophets is considered to be a strong argument in favor of the divine origin of the Scriptures.

  1. I just found your blog and am interested in doing this curriculum with my girls. I had a question for you. Would it be to young for my daughters? They are 13 and 10.

  2. I think your girls are at a good age for this curriculum. You can make it simpler or more challenging, depending on their needs. I highly recommend it :-)

  3. Do the blog posts here reflect what is included in this curriculum or are you adding to it?

    1. Nicole, the posts reflect what is in the curriculum. However, we only did 6 of the 7 girls as we didn't have time to do Molly within our school year.
