SYNOPSIS Meet McKenna Brooks™, a determined and confident young gymnast, in this all-new modern-day adventure. McKenna™ is on track to make the regional competitive gymnastics team but off-track in school, where she’s suddenly struggling to keep up. When her teacher suggests a tutor, she’s embarrassed and desperate to keep it a secret from her friends. Then a bad fall at the gym sidetracks her from her favorite sport. Will she recover in time to make the team? Can she succeed in school, too? McKenna™ needs to focus on her strengths to overcome her challenges – and, with the help of family and friends, find a way to believe in herself again.
As I said, my daughter is a little bit young to really understand all that American Girl is but she still enjoyed watching the gymnastics and the older girls. I have to say, as a mother, I was thrilled to see a show for girls that shows positive messages. There is a lot of television out there that is too old or mature for young girls but this DVD is age appropriate while still being interesting and exciting. I also have to admit,I loved 90210 so it was a treat to see "Steve Sanders"! Be sure to pick up this new release for the American Girl fan in your life today....
