The other day Pippi noticed that there were a lot of interesting things in her social studies book. Things like the California Gold Rush, the dust bowl and World War II, but she doubts they'll ever get that far in the book (The book starts in pre-historic times)so she thought it might be nice to read some books set in those time periods. Actually, she specifically wants books set in the 1st half of the 20th century in America (where people aren't riding in buggies and wearing sun bonnets). They don't have to be specific about a topic - just using the time period.
She's ten - so some books are naturally going to be inappropriate (I won't be recommending The Grapes of Wrath to her anytime soon). She is an advanced reader so she can move beyond the American Girl books (though she did recently re-read the Kit ones to get a feel for the depression).
Any suggestions welcome. Thanks
