New American Girl Books for 2023

American Girl has listed some new books that will release in 2023 through the Library of Congress:


-American Girl is starting a new series, Who's That Girl, that details the lives of inspiring women in American history. This is similar to the short-lived A Girl Named series that was published via American Girl's former joint venture with Scholastic from 2018 to 2019. This series will be written by American Girl author Mel Hammond and illustrated by Spanish illustrator Chelen Ecija and New Hampshire-based illustrator Alexandra Bye.


The first book, illustrated by Chelen Ecija, is about Misty Copeland, who was also covered in the A Girl Named series:

"This is a book about an ordinary girl who grew up to be an extraordinary woman. Today, people know Misty Copeland as the first Black ballerina to become a principal dancer with American Ballet Theatre, one of the greatest ballet performing groups in the world. But as a child, she was just a girl who loved making up dances to her favorite songs. She'd never even seen a ballet, let alone taken a ballet class. Misty's life changed at age thirteen when she tried ballet for the first time at her after-school program. At first, Misty worried that she was too far behind the other students to ever be any good. But she listened to the small voice inside her head that encouraged her to dream big, work hard, and never give up. Today, she inspires people all over the world with her incredible dancing."


-2023 will mark the 25th anniversary of the classic The Care And Keeping Of You book and the 10th anniversary of The Care And Keeping Of You 2 book for older girls, and both Care and Keeping of You books will rerelease in new anniversary editions some time this year!

Hello. This is a great book! And what I need now. After all, I'm in the process of writing a complex academic essay, so I'm gathering material for homework in college. But there is not much time left, so the best option would be to seek help from https://customwriting.com/ a professional service to help students write essays and other similar educational content. I use such services not for the first time and I am satisfied with the quality of the work performed. This is the best solution for me to get an excellent rating.

this is of topic........ But I saw a post about you new dolls, and it looked like the Kidcraft house was in the backround. If you have it, can you post pictures of it? I haven't seen anyone unbox it or stuff like that.

They probably got the name of the series, Who's That Girl, from a fun game/section of really old American Girl magazines. In ones from the early 2000s or so, there would be two pages towards the back, them showing a picture of a celebrity when she was around the age of the magazine's readers, and giving lots of little clues, like "She wanted to be a writer" and "Her parents took her skating." On the next page, it would be "revealed" who that girl was. 😄

We are interested in any book concerning Ballet. Will be on the look out for The Misty Copeland book.
