I am a school librarian and I use this book with older children, grades 5-6, as part of a study of the Holocaust. The illustrations are excellent, reflecting the story, starting with bright and going to dull and colorless. The pictures are full of detail and are worthy of a discussion by themselves. One thing I STRONGLY disagree with is the idea that this would be suitable for children ages 5-8. This is part of a new genre of picture books, suitable for ages 10 and over, similar to Patricia Polacco's 'Pink and Say'.
