Here are a few more:
(Note: The list in this post is no long maintained. Be sure to visit the website.)
Seeds of Hope: The Gold Rush Diary of Susanna Fairchild, California Territory 1849 (Dear America Series) by Kristiana Gregory
A popular addition to the Dear America Series.
Early Sunday Morning: The Pearl Harbor Diary of Amber Billows (Dear America Series) by Barry Denenberg
The Porcupine Year (Hardcover) by Louise Erdrich
Rosie in New York City: Gotcha! by Carol Matas
For the younger set starting to learn about the states, I highly recommend
The Scrambled States of America by Laurie Keller – the book and the game.
The Scrambled States of America Talent Show by Laurie Keller
The Scramble States Game is Awesome!!! Teaches state trivia in a hilarious way. No household should be without a copy (seriously!)
