    I am working on a summer reading list for my history class (I teach high school but their reading levels are approximately 2nd to 3rd grade reading levels). I am trying to find a few good non-fiction books or even a fiction book with historical significance.

    I will be teaching ancient world history - from the romans to the renaissance / new science most likely. any and all book recommendations appreciated! :)

    Try the Magic Tree house compainion books. There is one for each of the fiction books. For instance there is a book about Pompeii. Mary Pope Osbornis the main author.

    Perhaps Number the Stars would be an excellent choice, though it is a little older than 3rd. Also normally when I get interested in finding a historical fiction book, I type topics into the children's section of Amazon.com, peruse Carol Hurst's literature site a bit (Google her), and/or visit the Scholastic Book Wizard website (http://bookwizard.scholastic.com/tbw/homePage.do).
