    Greatest Polacco Book EVER

    This is a heartwarming story of a girl, Monique, who finds a Jewish friend, Sevrine. It is also about their meetings at night. But when a neighbor spies them, it endangers both Monique and Sevrine¿s families. Sevrine¿s family has to flee. This book is a terrific book. This book would be wonderful for anyone who is learning about the French invasion, which is one of the saddest times in history.

    The Butterfly

    The Butterfly by Patricia Polacco is good for 2nd through 4th grade readers. The story takes place in a small French village. The Nazis soldiers sought to eliminate all the Jews from the village. The main character is Monique. She is bold and very generous. What will The Nazis soldiers do to the Jews? The Butterfy made me feel kind of sorry because The Nazis soldiers were hurting the Jews. I liked the book because I learned how cruel the Nazis soldiers were to the Jews.

    The Butterfly

    This novel is very inspiring and true. The author was very descriptive in his writing. This story took place in Germany during the time of the holocaust. The main character of the story is a young brave female name Monique. This book made me feel like I was in the story. It gave a great description of the Nazis and how they treated the Jews. When I looked at the title of this book I did not have a very high expectation of it. If you like history you will enjoy this book. If you love to read you will come back to the library with a smile after reading this book.

    Two Bave Little Girls-

    A wonderful way to explain the French occupation to students in elementary or middle school. WWII is moving in on Marcel Solliliage and her daughter in a small village in France. A beautiful butterfly brings the outside world to two small girls only to have them separated because they were seen letting a butterfly go out a window at night. Sevrine and her family live in a secret room in the cellar. This is a true story written by a great granddaughter. Marcel Solliliage was a citizen of France that was part of the Frence underground that was organized by General Charles de Gaulle. She was one of many they made their homes a safe place for Jews escaping to freedom during the terrible Nazi occupation. What a wonderful way to introduce this sad time in history.
