Valerie Trippwrote all the books in the Felicity, Josefina, Kit, and Molly series and three of the books in the Samantha series. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Yale University and has a Master's of Education degree from Harvard University. She lives in Silver Spring, Maryland.From Kirkus Reviews:
In this entry in one strand of the American Girls series (Meet Josefina, 1997, etc.), Josefina is approaching her tenth birthday and has decided she wants to be a healer like her godmother, Ta Magdalena. Participating in family and community activities - raising a baby goat, helping to replaster the church, and helping Ta Magdalena - take up much of her time. Near the end she is given the opportunity to prove her ability as a healer when her friend, Mariana, is bitten by a rattlesnake. This cheerful story is packed with historical tidbits. The adorable baby goat will appeal to the target audience, and although the story can be bland, it is well-paced, and enhanced by lovely realistic illustrations.
