Felicity is the first of the American Girls that we will be studying. "Meet Felicity" by Valerie Tripp is the first book in her six book series. Felicity Merriman® is a spirited, independent nine-year-old girl, growing up in colonial Virginia, in 1774, just before the the onset of The American Revolution. She was a very loyal, independent young girl who had a true love and passion for horses. Her father successfully owned and managed a general store in Williamsburg while her mother took care of her family and their home. Faced with some very tough choices, Felicity and her family had to decide if they were American Patriots or British Loyalists.
Word of the week - Independence
Felicity loved horses, so Kali wanted to learn more about them. We did research online and went to the library and checked out books about horses. Kali really enjoyed learning more about them and learning how
to draw them.
