Addy Learns a Lesson

Series: American Girl
by Connie Rose Porter Illustrated by Melodye Rosales

After escaping from a plantation in North Carolina, Addy and her mother arrive in Philadelphia. At school for the first time, she learns about reading and writing — and gets a lesson in true friendship.

In this exciting and popular series about American girls, young readers can share in the worlds of girls from other eras. The important things that all American girls share — families, friendships, and feelings; secrets, celebrations, and adventures — come alive in these stories.
