Homeschooling: Reading List Preteens

Books Children Love, Elizabeth Larraway Wilson  [Amazon reviewers noted that many of the books are out of print.  For good books, though, it is often worthwhile to request volumes through inter-library loans, or to use services such as Alibris, AbeBooks, Powell's, or Biblio.]

Read Across America a state-by-state booklist
"A popular activity is to "travel" across a map of the U.S. by reading a book that takes place in each of the states. (A variation is to read a book whose author lives in a particular state, or a book about a particular state.) If your class is participating in this activity and you are a book or two short, or your students are eager for more, try these titles."
