Dear America: Down the Rabbit Hole: Susan Campbell Bartoletti: Along with A City Tossed and Broken (The Diary of Minnie Bonner)
Dear America: Down the Rabbit Hole by Susan Campbell Bartoletti’s writing is always clear and at times elegant. She creates a very likable young protagonist and paints this endearing character against a well-drawn historical backdrop.
Dear America: Down the Rabbit Hole by Susan Campbell Bartoletti, http://www.amazon.com/dp/054529701X/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_NGA4rb06ANSF4
Down the Rabbit Hole, Chicago, Illinois, 1871: The Diary of Pringle Rose (Dear America). I'm a fan of Susan Campbell Bartoletti, and this story is fast-paced and interesting with great characters, but it's not nearly as good as her other books. There's too much going on at once; too many coincidences and loose ends; and the ending is abrupt and disappointing.
love this book true Dear America: Down the Rabbit Hole by Susan Campbell Bartoletti. She writes poetry, short stories, picture books, novels, and nonfiction for young readers.
"Dear America: Down the Rabbit Hole, The Diary of Pringle Rose" by Susan Campbell Bartoletti: It is 1871 in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and fourteen-year-old Pringle Rose, still grieving from the death of her parents, takes her brother Gideon, who has Down syndrome, escapes from her uncle and aunt, taking a train to Chicago--but disaster seems to follow her there.
Dear America books were some of my favorite as a kid and I still love them!
