Posted 04/27/21 by Jozlyn H

Learning the history of World War II may help prevent it from happening again. A great way for children to learn about this time in history is through fiction books. Below is a list of books, some of them award-winning, for students in grades 4-8. A few of the titles are geared more towards grades 7-8 (The Boy on the Wooden Box, Grenade, and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas).

A Library card and PIN will be required to access many of the resources listed. Need help with your card or PIN? Contact your nearest location or call 419-259-5200. Need a new card?
