These books are in the Historical category because the subject of the book is an event in history. Most of the titles on the list are Historical Fiction which means that the story is set in the past. The setting is usually real and set from History and there may even be some real characters in the book. The main characters of the story, however, are usually m
ade up.

One of the best things about Historical Fiction is that you often learn something about history while you are reading an entertaining story. The authors use the characters to help you understand what it was like during that time period in History.

Some of my favorites on our historical fiction list are the Little House on the Prairie books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. You learn about the lives of pioneers and what it was like to settle the Midwestern territories.

Another entertaining book series on this list is the Magic Tree House by Mary Pope Osborne. In the Magic Tree house series there are forty six books and twenty three research guides. The Magic Tree house books are popular because they are fast moving and cover a variety of topics from Dinosaurs to Ancient Baghdad.
