Tweens and Teens Making a Difference

It’s easy to look at kids today and think they are so much different than we were.  You’ll hear it a lot in the press: they are entitled, they are spoiled, they are lazy.  But the truth is, there are kids out there doing amazing things and fighting to make the world a better place.  They may be more plugged in, but they are still full of heart.

Ceci is our sometimes book reviewer for Middle Grade Fiction.  She is a HUGE reader, and she plays field hockey.  She is not the type of girl you see a lot in the media and in the dolls that line store shelves.  So she decided she wanted to do something for girls like her and has started a campaign to ask American Girls to make a Field Hockey playing doll.

Here is her letter . . .
