The American Girl Doll of the Year - McKenna . . .

As you know, I'm giving away one American Girl of the Year McKenna Doll on March 13th. I am very happy to say this doll's story is one which encourages girls to keep trying and to not give up when they face difficulties. It also makes a strong point about being willing to both accept help and give help to others. While McKenna is a good reader, she has trouble with comprehension, which causes problems with getting her homework completed and being able to take tests at school. She has to learn it is a good thing to accept help from others and learns important lessons about telling the truth in the process.

So, judging from the response yesterday, you all are pretty happy about about this give-away! I'm pretty happy about it, too! I love to give things away and American Girl dolls are fun things to give away! You can have an entry in this give-away by first of all, "liking" grandma's cookie jar using the tab in the "find us on facebook" box ON THE BLOG - you only need to do this one time. You can have additional entries by "sharing" any of my posts between now and March 13th. (Please message me or comment when you share so I know you did so and can give you the additional entries)

  5. My daughters friend at her autistic program would love this doll. She loves to take care of things. My daughter helps her with her homework and life skills, like an older sister. My daughter is autistic too. If my daughter gave this doll to her it would help them bond even closer. Thanks for the chance to win such a beautiful doll.
