About this title


The diary of Caroline Cowles Richards, a ten-year-old girl who lived in western New York during the 1850s who records her family and school life, clothing, transportation, and views on women's rights. Includes activities and a timeline related to this era.

From Booklist:

Reviewed with Charlotte Forten's A Free Black Girl before the Civil War.

Gr. 4-8. These titles, part of the Diaries, Letters, and Memoirs series, attempt to introduce readers to the first-person accounts of actual Americans. Forten, a 16-year-old African American living in Massachusetts, describes her schooling, her participation in the antislavery movement, and her reactions to the capture and return of a fugitive slave. Richards, a 10-year-old living in western New York state, discusses her family and school life, daily activities in a small town, and her reactions to the burgeoning women's rights movement. Both volumes begin with an introduction explaining primary sources, and provide numerous sidebars that clarify terms or topics and offer related projects. The format, with many illustrations, is pleasing, and the use of two colors for the text clearly separates the primary material from the commentary. These are tailor-made for history lessons or creative writing classes exploring the diary form. For more titles, see the Series Roundup. Kay Weisman
