I don't remember much of these books as individual books, but I remember reading them all as a young, avid reader. I think that ultimately these books are the reason why I love historical fiction novels so much. They all did such a great job of taking me to a different time and place and making it come alive, seeing the world through an older, historical lens. I highly recommend any of the Dear America books to younger readers who love history and need to get hooked on reading! ( )

My copy from childhood was lost in ZA, but I found this one in a used book store (church) at Valley Forge itself! I'd forgotten why this was one of my favourite Dear America diaries, but it really is a stirring account of life very close to the army camp for a young girl in 1777-1778. This has always been one of my favourite periods in history and I love that this book could entertain me when I was young and can still do so now, when I know so much more about history and context.

Summary: Abigail's world is turned upside down when George Washington and his troops settle in her home town of Valley Forge for the Winter. Abigail learns to open her heart and home as the troops become ill and face the dangers and illness of winter.

Personal Reaction: I think this is a very well detailed story that narrates just the full length of winter and what troops would have been faced with in their harsh climates. I think it is so important to understand that there are more dangers involved in war that fighting.

Classroom extensions: I think it would be great for students to review cards in a deck, as well as some of the card games that used to be played during this period. ( )
