American History Book List

I was asked for a list of non-fiction and historical fiction books for Colonial and American history for elementary students. Instead of making a list an emailing it I decided to write it on my blog so I can update it and change it as I need to without having to search for the email. Sometimes a blog makes a great bulletin board.
