Literature lovers, help us out!  We’re looking for recommendations for great historical literature for kids ages 5 through 9 to read with an adult caregiver. The books can be historical fiction, biography, or nonfiction, as we’re planning to pick books to feature on our museum’s OurStory Web site.

We’re especially looking for books on the following topics:

  • September 11, 2001 (the events of September 11, 2001 or more general remembering events in history), possibly similar to Fireboat by Maira Kalman
  • The      American Civil War (the      experiences on the home front or battlefields), possibly similar to Pink and Say by Patricia Polacco
  • Immigration (including modern stories or immigration in      the early 1900s, Ellis or Angel Island), possibly similar to When Jessie Came Across the Sea by Amy Hest
