Their books, Meet Cécile and Meet Marie-Grace, enhance playtime with stories of these girls growing up in 1853 New Orleans.

Our Experience
American Girl never misses a single detail with their dolls, and they've truly outdone themselves with the brand new historical dolls, Cecile & Marie Grace! For the first time in American Girl's 25 year history, they've released these two historical dolls in unison with one storyline. The 6 book series weaves a heartwarming tale of the unlikely friendship that these two girls form, in 1853 New Orleans.
With a beautiful selection of historically and culturally accurate accessories, these American Girl dolls will take your little girl on an inspirational journey ultimately delivering the powerful message that we're all alike in the most important ways.

world-renowned musician & actor Harry Connick Jr. and
his 13 year old daughter Kate Connick helped to launch these new American Girl's, with the release of an original track "A Lot Like Me". All of the proceeds from the sale of their song, (currently available for download on iTunes) are benefiting the Ellis Marsalis Center For Music in New Orleans.
