The Top 10 Historical Fiction/Non-Fiction Pairings for Middle Grade Readers by Susan Dee While it’s certainly not a new idea to pair fiction and non-fiction texts, it’s one I’ve been spending more time thinking about over the past few years in my work with middle grade readers. About three years ago I began to notice that as I was conferring with readers in my classroom, they very rarely self-selected historical fiction stories. Trying to be responsive and knowing that sometimes readers need a gentle nudging to try something new, I started choosing more historical fiction books as read alouds, hoping that by reading and discussing these titles with my community of readers, they would begin to seek out more titles in this genre.

English Books Michael Cunningham — By NightfallGenre: #contemporary_prose_mb Peter and Rebecca Harris: mid-forties denizens of Manhattan’s SoHo, nearing the apogee of committed careers in the arts—he a dealer, she an editor. With a spacious loft, a college-age daughter in Boston, and lively friends, they are admirable, enviable contemporary urbanites with every reason, it seems, to be happy. 40+ Best Books for Boys Ages 8-14 40+ of the absolute BEST books for boys in their pre-tween, tween and teenage years. Let me start by saying that my now-teenage boys are not avid bookworms. They’re decent readers, but my sons don’t just hunker down with a book whenever they’re bored. They’d just rather be doing something rather than reading – like throwing a baseball or watching hockey game. My boys, however, always loved it when I read to them, and I did, every night, from the time they were babies until they were far too old for bedtime stories.
The Hitchhiker: Reading Comprehension As Andrea turned off the motorway onto the road to Brockbourne, the small village in which she lived, it was four o'clock in the afternoon, but already the sun was falling behind the hills.
