If you haven't read the May Amelia books by Jennifer L. Holm, I definitely recommend them...especially if you live in Washington State. May Amelia lives in south western Washington in 1900. She is the only girl in her Finnish immigrant farming family.
May Amelia Jackson struggles to be a proper young lady. I found a character my students could relate to set in a place a decade after Washington became a state.
