Classroom List

10.  “The Poet Slave of Cuba” by Margarita Engle

9.  “Rosa” by Nikki Giovanni

8.  ” The One and Only Ivan” by Katherine Applegate

7. “One Crazy Summer” by Rita Williams-Garcia

6. “The Wall: Growing Up Behind the Iron Curtain” by Peter Sis

5 . “Little House on the Prairie” by Laura Ingalls Wilder

4.  “Coming on Home Soon” by Jacqueline Woodson

3.  “Green” by Laura Vacaro Seegar

2.  “Henry’s Freedom Box: A True Story from the Underground Railroad” by Ellen Levine

1. “The House in the Night” by Susan Marie Swanson

With the exception of a couple of these books, they are all books that have heartfelt plots.  Some devastating and some sweet.  The other books that I find important to use in the classroom are picture books that have phenomenal illustrations.
