Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-6-This series features the edited diaries of real young people from different periods in American history. Captain's Daughter covers three years in the life of Laura Jernegan, who traveled with her family to the Pacific on whaling voyages. Schoolgirl offers passages from the diary of Caroline Cowles Richards, who lived in upstate New York with her wealthy grandparents. Quaker Girl presents excerpts from the journal of 16-year-old Sally Wister, who lived with her affluent family in Pennsylvania during the Revolutionary War. The texts are quite readable even though they retain the occasional misspelling and grammatical errors of the original sources. In all three books, sidebars provide background information, activity suggestions, and tips on starting a journal. Full-color and black-and-white photographs, reproductions, and drawings add clarity as well as visual appeal. This series will be the natural next step for fans of the "Dear America" fictional series (Scholastic).
