I first read this book with my mother when I was 7 years old, and I have never forgotten it since then. It's an incredibly gripping story that deals with childhood friendship and guilt during the beginning of the Holocaust. It's not a book with a lighthearted, feel-good ending, but it is a book that needs to be read to your child over and over again (with YOU, the PARENT, present) so as to introduce the subject of the Holocaust to a child in its purest essence. This book needs to be read so as to keep the memory of the Holocaust alive, and to do this we simply must pass it on to our children. This is NOT a book that should be given to a child with the pretense of "Here you go, have fun!" Instead, this is a book to be read with your child so that discussion and understanding can grow from it. Ultimately, it is a book that I have read to my own children and have recommended time and time again to other parents. Please, read this book and read it WITH your child. You'll certainly be glad you did.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
