30 Fascinating Historical Fiction Books for Middle School Readers
Great children's books can really make life during the Civil War come to life. Children can't help but be drawn into the time period when reading these kid-friendly soldier's diaries, age appropriate explanations about the Civil War, and compelling stories about civilian life during the war. We especially like the fictional "soldier diaries" AND the stories of civilian life during the Civil War. Modern wars like Afghanistan and Iraq are in distant lands, and unless a student personally knows someone fighting in those wars, war really doesn't impact their lives at all. This was certainly not the case during the Civil War.
Was anyone else obsessed with reading historical fiction as a middle schooler? There is still a long way to go to diversifying all categories of books. But we are definitely seeing progress in the kinds of historical fiction books for middle school being published today. The story of Moses, a Jewish boy born into slavery and eventually adopted by an Egyptian princess, is well-known. As she sacrifices again and again to protect her baby brother, Almah begins to feel more connected to the Egyptian gods than her own Hebrew religion.
