During this week when everyone still has the warm fuzzies over all things America, we are pleased to have the opportunity to tell you (or remind you) about a literature series for young people called Dear America.The Scholastic series is a favorite in our household so we were thrilled when we learned that the set of historical fiction celebrating American history is indeed printed in the United States. (A no-brainer, one would think, but not so, as our loyal readers may remember what we found when we went to the American Girl store in NYC.) For fans of the series, we have some exciting news. For those who have never heard of it, we've got the scoop. For anyone who wants a set of their own, we are launching a great giveaway today.
Girls, young women actually, finding themselves in the middle of significant moments in history, record their thoughts and experiences in their diaries – this is the concept behind the Dear America series. Written by award winning young adult authors and designed for grades 5-8, the series was published from 1996 to 2004. Due to demand from readers and educators alike, Scholastic reintroduced the series in 2010, gradually rolling out both new titles and classics from the original series. The new, bold artwork shows girls of strength and beauty facing the challenges of the times in which they live.
We are excited to help you start your collection of this wonderful, all-American series. Scholastic is offering a set of four books from the new series. One of our readers will receive a set for FREE with opportunities for multiple daily entries including “Pin It to Win It” options for Pinterest fans. Good luck!
Just click the Do It! button for further instructions on each entry. This giveaway will close at midnight on 7/19. A winner will be randomly selected, verified for correct entry participation, and notified by email. This giveaway is co-hosted by www.justchildrensbooks.com
