Esperanza Rising by Pam Munoz Ryan. Surprisingly very deep for a kids book and really sad at times. Good read. CHECK!
Esperanza and her mother are forced to leave their life of wealth and privilege in Mexico to go work in the labor camps of Southern California, where they must adapt to the harsh circumstances facing Mexican farm workers on the eve of the Great Depression. [Esperanza Rising by Pam Munoz Ryan]
To this day, Esperanza Rising by Pam Munoz Ryan is one of my all time favorite books from my childhood
Esperanza Rising by Pam Munoz Ryan is a recent winner of the Newbery Honor award. This book is a true story about a girl moving to the United States and working in a Mexican Labor Camp. I would use this book in the classroom to explain what it was like to live in America during the Great Depression and what the American Dream was like.

Gertrude Chandler Warner: The Boxcar Children....these were my favorite books when I was in elementary school!
The Boxcar Children #1. I have the first 4 box set still. This book is the Best of many. My favorite childhood book. ★★★★★
The Boxcar Children by Gertrude Chandler Warner. The first 19 are written by her and are childhood favorites.
Actually The Boxcar Children's books are the first little chapter books I remember reading. We used to go to the bookmoblie to check out books in our small town...
The Boxcar Children. A children book I read in elementary school, tells the story of four orphaned children, Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny. They create a home for themselves in an abandoned boxcar in the forest.
The Boxcar Children: the first in a long series of chapter books for early chapter book readers following the exploits of a group of brothers and sisters and their boxcar. I didn't much care for the series; it's not great literature. But my daughter absolutely loved it and read and reread every one as a child and she's a well-adjusted adult to this day, so it did her no harm. My favorite book of all time..
who can forget the Boxcar Children books? i recall wanting to live in a Boxcar as well...,
The Boxcar Children Books. Every day in 2nd grade Mrs. Powell would read these to us.

Dave Pelzer: A Child Called "It" I had to read this for a class in college... even though almost every page left me in tears, for some reason, it was well worth reading.
A Child Called It By Dave Pelzer... One of the most incredible stories I've ever read! The entire series is worth reading
A Child Called "It" by Dave Pelzer was probably the saddest book I have ever read. I cried so many times while reading this, and got hotflash angry just as much if not more.
This is an amazing book! A Child Called "It" A Special Edition of the inspiring true story of a young boy's abusive childhood, from internationally bestselling author Dave Pelzer.
One of my favorite books. This book is a true story about one of the worst child abuse cases in California's history. It came to an end on March 5, 1973 when Dave Pelzer entered foster care. Dave begins his incredible story as an abused child with his rescue in part one of a series, A Child Called "It". Calling this book a "page turner" doesn't give it justice. Easy to read, but difficult to comprehend how any mother could treat her child this way.
a child called "it" by dave pelzer saddest book i've ever read, yet so inspiring.
A Child Called "It" by Dave Pelzer. It's a sad book but its so good
"A Child Called 'It'" by Dave Pelzer So worth reading!
