Reply To: Civil War for a 4th grader


For a light read that is still fairly good for information, H.W. Crocker’s PIG to the Civil War is not bad. It might be a bit difficult for a 4th grader, but the PIG books are designed for a lower reading level.

This is a great book on Lee, written for that level in 1898:

I am not sure what type of report he needs to do. If it is a simple book report, then the PIG book is out. The Lee book would be more appropriate, though old.

She also wrote a similar book for Thomas J. Jackson, also good.
