White, Ellen Emerson Dear America: Voyage on the Great Titanic: The Diary of Margaret Ann Brady 208 pgs. Scholastic, 2010. Sexual Content-G; Violence-G; Language-G. $12.99. A part of the Dear America series, this particular book focuses on the voyage of the Titanic. These books are a wonderful way for students to learn more about these specific times in American history. The writers' stories make past events come alive for the readers and help instill a greater appreciation for our predecessors. Also included at the back of each book is a historical note about the time period as well as reproductions of important documents and paintings during that era. The only downside to these books are the new covers they are coming out with. The new covers take away from the diary feel and look too modern...hate the new look but love the stories within. EL/MS-ESSENTIAL. Whitney, Library-Teacher.
