Why is middle grade historical fiction an important genre of children's literature?
Around the time that students enter middle school, their knowledge of the past begins to shift from snapshots of famous people and events, to a broader critical understanding of the context behind these things that happened long ago. Because of this, children’s historical fiction, primarily published at the middle-grade reading level, are perfect tools for gaining historical awareness in both libraries and classrooms, and perfect opportunities to promote reading, imagination, and discovery.

What were the two main causes of immigration to the United States during the late 19th and early 20th centuries?
Immigration to the United States during the late 19th and early 20th centuries can be summarized into two main categories: push and pull. Those who were "pushed" to immigrate were forced to do so because of famine, uprising, and oppression. On the other hand, many immigrants sought a new homeland or new way of life and were "pulled" by the promise of opportunities in America.
