History Books and Historical Fiction for Kids

By Nina Kendall

Are you a reader? Do you want to share your love of reading and history with your young reader? Are you looking for a good place to start? History books for children and historical fiction for children offer some great options for inspiring young readers.

The love of history and reading grew together in my house. I grew up reading about history and visiting historical sites. History and books inspired conversations and trips. I have fond memories of Johnny Tremaine, The Witch on Blackbird Pond, and Little House on the Prairie. I could share in their experiences and adventures.  

As a teacher and a parent I have had the chance to share the love of reading about history and visiting historical sites with a new generation. From the Magic Tree House series to Bud not Buddy; I have continued to share books about history written for young readers.

Today we all benefit from the growth of books being published. Books published about history or with historical themes continue to grow.  If you are looking for a history book to share with your young reader, check out our list of old and new favorites.  It would be a great way to share your love of history with a new generation. You both may find a history book to love.
