    Our Strange New Land

    Our Strange New Land is a great book! I really enjoyed this book. It is about a young girl, trying to live in Jamestown. Her brother, Caleb, was left in England because of his lungs. I would definitely recomend this book to anybody that loves history! =]

    Engaging Reading

    We picked up the three Elizabeth's Jamestown Colony Diary books in the gift shop while visiting Jamestown, VA. My eight year old daughter had been an extremely reluctant reader until she started book one, Our Strange New Land. She couldn't put the books down, even reading in the car and instead of watching TV!! She's actually upset that there are only three books in the series!! I highly recommend these books to encourage the joy of reading as well as for the historical perspective they provide our children.

    A great story!

    This is a story about a young girl named Elizabth who journeys to Jamestown, Virginia with her family for a better life. She is sad that they had to leave Caleb, her twin brother at home, but quickly makes an new friend named Jessie. They quickly learn how bad the fort is with sickness and loss of food. They must learn many new things some sad and some good. She looks foward to the sping when Caleb is to join them in Jamestown! A good book for 8-12 year olds!
