Books for my Classroom

I am having this profile for Literacy Block and to also display a few books I believe students could benefit from.

The Watsons go to Birmingham

The Watsons Go to Birmingham—1963 - Christopher Paul Curtis

The Watsons go to Birmingham seems like it would be a good book to incorporate Reading and Social Studies. I have not read the book but for some reason, I remember my mom referencing the book when I was in her 5th grade classroom. The book is about a family that lives in Michigan and ends up moving to Birmingham, Alabama. I haven't read the book but I would love to! The book would be great to use in Reading. You could use Compare and Contrast between the two cities. You could also se the book in Social Studies about learning how times were in the 1960s. The book is a level of 5.5 but I believe grades 5 and 6 would be able to comprehend the book for the desired reason.
