American Girl Introduces 3 New Girls & They’re Big Changemakers

Read next

Calling all American Girl fans! The most popular doll brand is welcoming three new dolls, and they all have unique stories reflecting important issues the world is dealing with today.

Say hello to Makena Williams, Evette Peeters and Maritza Ochoa, all a part of the “World By Us” collection. The girls and their backgrounds touch on issues like immigration, the importance of working together to make the world a better place, environmentalism and racial equality.

As part of the new collection, each girl will have their own book that details their back story and overlap with others. To make the stories as authentic as possible, American Girl collaborated with acclaimed writers like Angela Cervantes, Denise Lewis Patrick and Sharon Dennis Wyeth.

And finally, American Girl will be donating $60,000 worth of World By Us books to Reader to Reader, Kids Need to Read and Little Free Library Read in Color Initiative to further literacy among children.

The World by Us collection is already available at americangirl.com and American Girl retail stores nationwide, including The World by Us books ($8).
