Number the Stars


Fan of reading literature that delves into this subject matter but given it was written or young adults children I thought it would be less painful While it was definitely less harsh than a thought it would be less painful While it was definitely less harsh than a other books I ve read on the topic it was still uite emotional To think what cruel people condoned because of differences in humankind is atrocious but this book was wonderfulLowry provides the right balance of positive and negative emotion ensuring readers aren t swept up entirely in pain The beautiful tale of unconditional love and support versus horrible actions and words rom soldiers standing guard in a oreign country really conveys the message to kids around ten years old There were atrocities in the past and we can t hide them but we can showcase them as tastefully as possible Kudos to Lowry I can t wait to take on

age range of 
range of years old to 88 years old in the old to 88 years old in the this book managed to hold all of attentionLike most readers I ve read plenty of books set during the WWII era Some were graphic and shocking in their descriptions of the horrendous acts that took place Others like Number the Stars go a Narcissus in Chains (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, far subtle route choosing to leave much to your imagination while providing just enough information so that the reader canigure out exactly what is going on With two children in the car subtle and less graphic was an obvious benefit However I was amazed by the depth of understanding my 9 year old had of the story that unfolded I was incredibly impressed by the way the author was able to craft a story that appealed to such a broad audience Set in a German occupied Denmark in WWII Number the Stars tells the story of a teenaged Annemarie Johansen She and her Cinderella for a Night (36 Hours, family helped rescue her bestriend Ellen Rosen and her Friend Foe family The two girls had grown up together Like their daughters the parents were bestriends also having been neighbors or yearsWhen the German occupation becomes increasingly hostile the writing is On The Wall For the wall or Jews The Johansen s are ordinary people that took extraordinary risks to stand against injustice in the only way they knew how They become active in the resistance movement helping to smuggle targeted groups of people to safetyI don t want to give too much away because this is a story that I believe should be read and experienced by everyone I will say that it was deeply sentimental and thought provoking There was plenty of action and suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat but nothing too terrifying or gory Grassroots Innovation for children This is theirs. Ten year old Annemarie Johansen and her best riend Ellen Rosen often think of life before the war It's now 1943 and their life in Cope.
