Dear America & Tapestry of Grace

I just became aware of the Dear America books, a series of historical fiction books, aimed at girls ages 8-13. Each book is written in the form of a diary of a young girl during a different era of US History. They also made some of the books into episodes that are available on Netflix. I am excited to read & watch some of these with my daughter as we study the coinciding time periods in Tapestry of Grace! 

Following is a list of the episodes that are available on Netflix, along with a link to the actual book (some of which are even available on Kindle!),the week I plan to use it with Tapestry of Grace and a link to the discussion guide from scholastic. There are a lot more books available, but this is where we will start!


  1. We LOVE the Dear America series! We are just in the colonial period so, my daughter is getting a chance to read these on her own. Thanks for linking up!

  2. Hi Mary! I see your posts on FB and love being able to pray for your family & ministry. I didn't know you had a blog until today! I love what you're doing. We use a lot of the same curriculum. Do you ever check out the Home Educating Family blog? They are looking for reviewers for books and curriculum, and I think some of your posts would fit so nicely. =)
