Spuds by Karen Hesse. Rural depression era dialogue, not too forced... the kids steal potatoes from a nearby field, and Ma finds out. Won't say any more.
Minerva Louise (On Christmas Eve) by Janet Morgan Stoeke. Some nice wordplay going on if your kids like that.... silly Minerva.
Really like this lady's book blog Vintage Books My Kid Loves. Inspired to start putting up the books we borrow from the library.
