Historical Fiction... Exciting!
I'm here to tell all of our wonderful children customers: Historical fiction is good! It's not boring! It's won't put you to sleep! Historical fiction is actually entertaining. The stories can be adventurous, funny, sad, personal, and fantastic. So, next time I recommend a book based around historical events, I hope I do not hear, "Yuck! Definitely not that!" Instead, I expect an enthusiastic, "Yes! That sounds great!"
Check out some of my favorite historical fiction titles:
- Number the Stars by Lois Lowry
- Nory Ryan's Song by Patricia Reilly Giff
- Someone Named Eva by Joan M. Wolf
- The Ballad of Lucy Whipple by Karen Cushman
- Crispin: The Cross of Lead by Avi
