Separated by decades, this list includes books set in the 1900’s and ends with books set in the 1990’s. Plus a bonus list of books set in the early 2000’s if your curriculum wants to take you to current times. This list is in an easy-to-read format with space to add other books you find. It includes a wide range of books from various states, with both boy and girl main characters experiencing different challenges. Many are award winners.
