Too Simplistic for 5th Grade
5th Grade US History: Famous US Authors: Fifth Grade Books American Writers (Children's Literature Books) - Baby Professor

While the authors listed in the book were about the correct age or grade (maybe a little older) there were a number of authors that should have been in there and weren't. There was also some information about the authors listed that I covered when we read these authors (or are reading them). So many things that should have been brought up and left out.

Another That is Too Young
5th Grade Us History: Famous US Inventors: Fifth Grade Books Inventors for Kids (Children's Inventors Books) - Baby Professor

This is labeled for 5th grade but would be better for 2nd grade. I wonder if the author, like me, thinks of the simpler time where kids didn't write full on papers in 5th grade on research topics? It would be a good book to bring up the inventors, but only gives a little information, when I was teaching my girls 5th grade they had to know so much more about the inventor than what was provided in this book.

Way too Young
Sixth Grade Daily Geography: Simple Geography Lessons: Wonders Of The World for Kids 6Th Grade Books (Children's Mystery & Wonders Books) - Baby Professor

Good information, but this book lists as for 6th graders and it just came across as way too young. This would be good for younger students.

Yes, these books are all on Kindle. Yes, these books were all found and purchased for free. Yes, the ones that list as grade levels have some really nice photography. Yes, they have some really good, but sparse information. They just did very simple information and again I feel that the books are too simple and too easy for the grades listed. 

 

If you have younger kids, these might be good starters.

I realize that these state that they are for 4th and 5th grades, but I felt that they might have some information that would be good for what we are studying, but these were too young. I felt that they would have been good for kindergarten or 1st graders over 4th or 5th graders. 

 

The pictures in the books were very well done and the wording was definitely for teaching, but was definitely too young for the grades mentioned.
