I like this list - I'd like to read more of these. I really enjoyed them as a kid. I'm interested to read them now as an adult to see if they have any bias to them (if there is such a thing as an unbiased history).


message 2: by Katherine (new)

Katherine Im glad that the oregon trail diary is no.1 ive read that one 8 times its sooo good!


message 3: by Adam (new)

Adam luved across the wide and lonesome prarie


 Imani ♥ ☮ when i was younger these were like all i read. i used to think i had read almost all of them but some of these books ive never even heard of. oh well, guess i read the same books over and over again :)


message 5: by Catie (new)

Catie There are so many more of these than when I was young... Man, did I love these. The Oregon Trail and Alamo diaries really lit me up...


message 6: by Marion (new)

Marion In elementary school we would go to the library once a week, there was one section that only had these books. Let's say I spent the whole time trying t figure out which one to choose. These were all I read, and I miss them. So, I might have to start reading them again. I blame these for my addiction to historical fiction, my hopeless romanticism, and the fact that I cry way too easy.


♥•sümmεr-rαyñε höpεs•♥ I love them there my favorite books I have read all of them. Well almost all of them I think by the time i'm in high school i'll finish them.


message 8: by Allison (new)

Allison I remember reading most of these in elementary school and I LOVED them. Not only did they teach me historical facts but I remembered those facts and those stories. Now I'm a jr. high English teacher and I recommend them to my students.


message 9: by Katrina (new)

Katrina I read two of these in 5th grade, and all the rest over the summer :) Except for one that I read last summer around when it came out, and two I've yet to read, plus one I don't like. Still, I love the series!


message 10: by Holly M. (new)

Holly M. Isn't "My Brother's Keeper" from the My America series, not the Dear America series?


message 11: by Haley (new)

Haley Ahhh, they had all of these at my library at my elementary school. Such fond memories...


message 12: by Larkyn (new)

Larkyn I liked the one about the women's suffrage movement so much when I was younger that I wrote a twenty page research paper on the suffrage movement last year :D I use to love these books so much!


message 13: by Carianne (new)

Carianne I love these books so much! so many I have never heard of


message 14: by Elise (new)

Elise Technically, "My Brother's Keeper (My America: Virginia's Civil War Diary, Book One)" is not part od the "DEAR America" series. It should probably be taken off.


message 15: by Carolina (new)

Carolina I love this list. Dear America is my favorite series! I've read 13 of them. My favorite is Voyage on the Great Titanic and Survival in the Storm.


message 16: by Cecilia (new)

Cecilia Dupre This is my favorite series and I hope that it never ends! :)


message 17: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth Truiett Thank you so much for this complete list. I had no idea there were so many!


message 18: by Cecilia (new)

Cecilia Dupre That's not the complete list. Thre are probably around 300 books.


message 19: by Hannah (new)

Hannah This series was my childhood. I feel like I grew up with these girls because I read their diaries so much. I'd like to re-read these now that I'm going for my degree in American History and see if they add up to my general knowledge now.


message 20: by Mary (new)

Mary I have actually stopped supporting American Girls/Dear America because they support abortion.


message 21: by Gina (new)

Gina I like dear America


message 22: by Kaitlin (new)

Kaitlin Harrington These books are so great!!!


message 23: by Jordyn (new)

Jordyn Hendery I loooovvve Dear America and read all of them when I was younger and now I recently discovered Dear Canada and I love them as well!


message 24: by Greta (new)

Greta Mitchell I am a loyal Dear America reader, and have devoured every one in my school library. Tell me what your favorite Dear America book is, and if I haven't read it already, I will! I went through a list and apparently I've only read sixteen of the possible forty-two! I was shocked! :) My favorite is Across the Wide and Lonesome Prairie-- no wait, that's my second. A Coal Miner's Bride is my all time favorite D.A!!!!
