Kids + Genealogy: Books about World War II for Middle Readers

Learning about historical events is a key part of getting kids to enjoy genealogy, but some details of history are too graphic for children. It can be tough to find appropriate books that represent a period of time accurately but don’t tell too much too soon. That being said, many authors have done a wonderful job of capturing the time period and telling engaging stories that will give kids an idea of what their ancestors’ lives were like during World War II.
