Title: Mentor Texts
Post by: charles-richardson1 on April 13, 2020, 01:55 PM
I'm looking for middle grade mentor books with a  current setting but references past decades. Not looking for books that have flashbacks but a main theme is to reference events/people in the past. Thanks.

Hi. I'm  not sure if what you're looking for is historical fiction for middle grade.  I've included some links just in case:

https://afomaumesi.com/middle-grade-historical-fiction-books/

https://bookriot.com/2018/10/12/historical-fiction-books-for-middle-school-readers/

If not these sites may point you in the direction.   If not the next site is a good reference to finding books by age and themes:

Hope you find something useful.
