Can I get some opinions on the reading list I've come up with for my 7th and

8th grade boys? We will be using Notgrass America the Beautiful for our history, but not the lit suggestions.


Blood on the River

Calico Captive

My Brother Sam is Dead

Tom Sawyer

Great Little Madison

Lincoln a Photobiography

Across Five Aprils

Treasure Island

War Horse

The Yanks are Coming

Seargent York

Number the Stars

Corrie Ten Boom

10,000 Days of Thunder

Call of the Wild

God's Smuggler

The Giver



Any thoughts? I would like one more book on World War 2 if anyone has any suggestions. :bigear:


Thanks so much!
