Question:

Why is middle grade historical fiction an important genre of children's literature?

Answer:

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.

Answer:

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.
