Dear America: A Journey to the New World: The Diary of Remember Patience Whipple, Mayflower, 1620
by Katharine Lasky

Twelve-year-old Remember Patience Whipple ("Mem" for short) has just arrived in the New World with her parents after a grueling 65-day journey on the Mayflower.  Mem has an irrepressible spirit, and leaps headfirst into life in her new home. Despite harsh conditions, Mem is fearless. She helps to care for the sick and wants more than anything to meet and befriend a Native American. A fun book to read aloud or have kids read when teaching about colonial times or around Thanksgiving time.

This book is part of the Dear America series--a series of fictional journal accounts by girls living in different times in American history.  There is also a related series of fictional diaries written by boy characters--the My Name is America series. Both series are written in the form of historical fiction diaries and are fantastic to use when teaching American history or even diary/journal writing.
