Fiction set in Colonial America

In November 5th grade students will be reading fiction set in Colonial America during the years 1600-1740. We have some titles in our school library that students may choose from, however you may also browse through various online lists.

Remember to check the exact time period that your novel is set in! Much Colonial American ficion is set around the time of the Revolutionary War, which is too late for Ms. Russell's assignment.

You can also search the public library by entering the following subject headers:

United States History Colonial Period Ca 1600 1775 Juvenile Fiction


United States History Colonial Period Ca 1600 1775 Fiction

The second subject header will yield more results, but you must check the call number to be sure of the intended age group. If the call number begins with a J, the book is intended for elementary-aged students. If it begins with a Y, the book is intended for young adults (teens). However, if you click on the "reviews" button in the book's record you can find more detailed information about recommended ages.
