    Hi all!

    Do you have any suggestions on a good novel study book for third grade that covers civil rights and race? Many that I have read/researched, like The Watsons Go To Birmingham, are just too mature for third. What do you think about Stella by Starlight? Or the more contemporary Blended?

    I haven't read those 2 books yet. When I read the reviews they were very good (especially Stella by Starlight), but seem more for about 5th grade. I would love to see more books for 3rd grade for this subject too.

    In third grade, the civil rights movement is basically covered by talking about Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Junior. Scholastic has a really good book called Take a Stand, Rosa Parks! that is very appropriate third grade. It's fairly cheap on Scholastic's website, but you can also get it on Amazon.

    The authors of this book were Peter and Connie Roop.

    I found this book to be very age-appropriate for third grade readers.
