Dear America Books

Sifting through the books in the library, I came across a series everyone else probably knows about, but was new to  me.  It’s the “Dear America” series.  They are pretend diaries written from a child’s point of view from historically significant times.  For example, I checked out one from a child in Jamestown Virginia from 1609.  It recounts the hardships the settlers experienced.

There are a number of these books that cover everything from the pilgrims, to the trail of tears, to child factory workers.  For those of you looking for interesting history books for your kiddos, here’s one series to try.
