Dear America: A Journey to the New World  Nov 12, 2008
I enjoyed this book very much. it was about a young 12 year old girl named remember patience whipple. her and her mother are part of a religious group. they both have to travel across the atlantic ocean to a new world. they spend two months aboard the mayflower with bad food, the lack of drinking water, viscious stroms, and boredom in a leaky room that is not intended for human cargo. what they find out when they get to the new world is almost as bad as the journey it took thm to get there. if you want to know more you will have to read this awesome historica fiction book by kathryn lasky!
Wonderful Book!  Sep 23, 2007
I've read almost all of the Dear America series! These are excellent books to read to nursing home patients!

These books take you into the past; into the lives of the people of the time period.

Patience Whipple showed profound courage and strength by overcoming heartbreaking odds to survive.

Highly recommend this book!
Five Stars  Aug 8, 2007
A wonderful beginning to the Dear America Series. Remember Patience Whipple better known as Mem is a twelve year old girl on the Mayflower with her parents and little sister Blessing. Set up in a diary form Mem writes about the voyage, her new friend Hummy and her experiences on the Mayflower and the first couple months at Plymouth Rock. She meets one of the Native Americans Squanto, experiences losing her new friend Hummy, her mother's illness and death, and her father's remarriage. Kathryn Lasky made Mem such a delightful and wonderful girl and paints a vivid picture of life on the Mayflower and at Plymouth Rock.
Blast from the past with a pilgrim girl  Aug 5, 2006
Remember Patience Whipple is a pilgrim child on the Mayflower. When Remember comes ashore, things get tough. Lots of people are dying, including a member of her family, and it's harder still when her best friend has to go back to Holland. I first saw the movie version of this book, and I just had to read it. After a slow beginning, it gets better and better. This is not quite as good as the other "Dear America" books that I have enjoyed--but like the other books, this one made me feel as though I was back in the past with the characters.
Pretty Good Look at Pilgrim Life  Jun 1, 2006
This is a pretty good book about a pilgrim girl coming to America in the early 17th century. I give it four stars because even though the writing is descriptive and well-paced, the main character is too headstrong and stereotypical for me. Also, I didn't feel any really strong emotions while reading this book. However, I do recommend it as a beginner for the series because it is set before any of the other books in the series.
A View of the Unexplored Fronteir  Jan 20, 2006
The book A Journey to the New World is the fictional yet accurate account of the pilgrims' settlement in America, the new world, to be free from the king's religious oppression. The story is told in diary form, through young Remember Patience Whipple, making it easier for younger readers to comprehend but benefit in full. The book is the beginning of a new nation, an unexplored future of pain and suffering, joy and happiness. The book is finly illustrated; another great accomplishment by Kathryn Lasky.
