Is It Any Good?

Book trilogies such as the one that this volume launches offer a sneaky way to get teenagers to read. Those who enjoy the first book will want to read the others. The quilt the girls are working on becomes the mechanism for tying the three books -- and the three sisters -- together, and their various romances tie young fans into a sense of the past.

While it doesn't rise to the level of literature, A STITCH IN TIME can be a good tool for showing kids that history doesn't have to be boring. Real people lived then, too, and little sisters could be just as awful then as they are today. Love still triumphs. History can be romantic and exciting.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
