Grace Thomas is a French baker who just loves to bake – hence the aprons worn in the GMA video – and she’s also an entrepreneurial-minded American Girl doll, which is a skill that American Girl fans will learn when they read Grace Thomas’ new book. Grace believes in working together, so Thomas’ friends help her in her endeavor to launch her own bakery. Like other American Girl dolls that practice crafts like writing, Grace Thomas adds to the allure of smart girls focusing on their God-given talents.
