Avi. The Fighting Ground
Banim, Lisa. Drums at Saratoga--from
the publisher's Stories of the States collection. It 's no great
shakes as literature, but it is historical fiction for the "lower-reading"
student, and its subject is the American Revolution. Another title that
comes to mind is George Washington's Socks; it's a time-travel book about
a group of today's kids accompanying Washington across the Delaware.

Jensen, Dorothea; Riddle of Pennecroft
Farm. It is the story of a boy who meets a revolutionary soldier's ghost.
It goes a long way to explain terms and phrases that grew out of that time
period. And as the boy learns about the revolution so does the reader.
Lawson, Robert, Mr. Revere and
I, is very simple, and the kids enjoy learning about the war through the
eyes of Paul Revere's horse. I booktalk it with the low 5th grade reading
