Karen Yingling has written at her blog, Ms. Yingling Reads, that historical fiction isn't particularly popular with the students who use her library. I, on the other hand, was fond of the genre when I was all over libraries like Ms. Yingling's. (I was a library aid for a year or two, by the way. Haven't heard of those in a long time.)
Anyway, recalling my days reading fictionalized accounts of long dead kings and queens, as well as stacks of stories of young early nineteenth century women marrying wealthy aristocrats, and those long, long multi-generational stories that cover a century...or two...inspired me to create a Pinterest board on my favorite childlit historical fiction covered here at Original Content.
Pinterest is so easy.
