An American Girl

Did you ever read the American Girl books when you were a kid?  I sure did!  The illustrations from the books produced in the late 80s-early 90s were by Renee Graef.  Her illustrations have such a warm, soft, whimsical quality about them.  Reading the books and looking at the illustrations always made me feel safe.  Sadly, American Girl has encountered some changes since working with Mattel - they replaced the illustrations on the covers and retired Samantha.  I'm glad I have my old books. :)
