Amazing book with great messages!

Review by Aliyah

The Woodcarver’s Daughter is about a girl named Batya living in 1915 Russia who wants to be a woodcarver. When she and her family move to America, she hopes the rules will be different, but it’s the same! Only boys can be woodcarvers; girls have to learn to iron and sew! But one day she ditches school and finds a carousel, some new friends, and a chance at following her dream. This was a great book, and I liked seeing a bit of what life was like back then. I loved this book, and I think you will too if you like books about history, feminism, and altogether amazing stories.
