    1. This story, “Lanie”, by Jane Kurtz, is about a little girl named Lanie, who believes her family all have “inside genes”, and aren’t into exploring the outdoor world. It seems to Lanie that she’s the only one with “outside genes”. On top of that, her best friend, who also has “outside genes” is off in a rain forest, getting to explore nature, while Lanie is stuck at home when she would rather be outside. However, things begin to change as her aunt, Hannah, who is a big nature [...]


    2. My daughter Makani and I read this book together. This is a great mother-daughter read. Lots of food for thought and discussion. What I like most is that Lanie loves science just as daughter does, and this book has helped Makani start her own science journal. She's been climbing trees to do some bird watching and to take notes on the behaviors and bird calls of those outside our house.And I like that Lanie struggles with emotions like envy and disappointment. More discussion material.This is a g [...]


    3. My college roommate and I just finished reading this book together. We are such American Girl fans and had so much fun. We're going to make tuna pizza tonight for dinner. I'm not even kidding in the least bit.


    4. It was a good book. I'm sure I would have a liked it more when I was younger. But, older-me had a hard time with parts of it, and their believability, or plausibility. Also, I'm not sure if I like the illustrations a lot. They aren't bad, either. It's just that it felt like they didn't completely match the story (I don't know how else to say it), and they aren't my favorite. They could be a little better, IMO.


    5. I thought it was a very cute book. I thought it taught the reader quite a bit and I thought Lanie was sweet even though she did get angry, but everyone has bad days.


    6. This is book one for American Girl of the Year 2010 Lanie Holland.A fun and interesting read. The story in this book wraps up in the end and can stand alone if you can't find the second book.Lanie is a 9-year old fourth grader and the middle sister. She gets to help in her little sister's first grade classroom. Her older sister is in high school. She loves science and being outside with her house rabbit, Lulu. The rest of her family prefers indoor activities. News comes that Aunt Hannah will be [...]


    7. About the Book:Ten-year-old Lanie loves science and nature, but she has a problem: she's an "outside" girl with an "inside" family. She longs get out and go camping, but they all want to stay home. It wouldn't be so bad if her best friend was around, but she's halfway around the world, living out their dream of studying wildlife. Lanie feels she never gets to have any adventures -- anywhere. But when her favorite aunt comes to stay, Lanie discovers that the wonders of nature are everywhere -- ev [...]


    8. Lanie has just planted a garden, because her Aunt Hannah is over. She is also helping her little sister, Emily with their caterpillars,because she is the fourth grade helper. Emily won`t look at them because she is scared of bugs, after she found on in the sink when she was brushing her teeth. Lanie`s best friend, Dakota has moved away for awhile. Lanie keeps in touch with her by email. But when Aunt Hannah has to go to Costa Rica for six weeks, Lanie knows that she is responsible for the garden [...]


    9. This was one of the better annual American Girl books. Lanie loves science and adventure. She is stuck at home with her family who are NOT adventurous while her best friend goes to Indonesia with her family and gets to study orangutans. Lanie's aunt comes to visit and spring break starts to look a bit better for her, but when her aunt leaves suddenly Lanie has to learn to adjust and look for adventures and animals to study closer to home. She even starts to get her little sister to come with her [...]


    10. I expected less of this book but once I started I knew I wasn't gonna stop! this book is about a girl named Lanie she wishes to be a scientist when she grows up. Lanie's aunt Hannah comes to visit and they start a garden together, aunt Hannah leaves Lanie when she has to go and Lanie misses her terribly. Lanie has trouble planting in her garden alone and she finds someone she didn't expect who can help out her project.


    11. This is one of those books that makes me want to go out and plant a garden. Or at least think about planting a garden while I wait for Spring to come. Lanie loves the outdoors and wants to share this with her family. I like how she sets about discovering the world in her own backyard. Fun story!


    12. I enjoyed this. The negative 1 star is just for the emphasis on all of the "save the earthy" stuff. I didn't care for that too much. It did come pretty close to inspiring me to start a garden, though.


    13. This book has a lot to do with science and nature. Pretty good Not the best book in the library i wish it was longer and a LOT more entertaining, maybe the next time this author can write stories thathave more humor next time.




    14. We bought this book two hours ago,then I went home and read it. I thought it was graet. Now I'm off to read the second one.

    16. It was good--a bit heavy on the "save the earth" thing. I didn't need to hear about all the recycling and all that suff on everynglege.
