Overview

Terrible Things: An Allegory of the Holocaust by Eve Bunting

The animals in the clearing were content until the Terrible Things came, capturing all creatures with feathers.

Little Rabbit wondered what was wrong with feathers, but his fellow animals silenced him. “Just mind your own business, Little Rabbit. We don’t want them to get mad at us.”

A recommended text in Holocaust education programs across the United States, this unique introduction to the Holocaust encourages young children to stand up for what they think is right, without waiting for others to join them.

This book is good for young students to undertand about bad things like the evil shadows in this book, but even for kids the Holocaust is an event in history that shouldnt be lightened by the use of animals and forests. This fairy-tale like story doesnt to do the Holocaust justice, even if it is for a younger age group.

This is an excellent book for using with a Holocaust unit. Suggestion--after reading the book, have students draw what they think the "terrible things" look like (no illustrations are provided for "the terrible things"). This book will make you think about standing by and doing nothing!

This book makes you understand that in some cases like these you might have to listen to your self not others because that they might not care about it.

As a future educator, the task of teaching the holocaust to small children is daunting. This book is a wonderful way to introduce a difficult topic to children in elementary school.

This is an excellent book to teach children the meaning of bystanders and what can happen if bystanders don't speak up for victims. An easy to read book that is good for all grade levels- even middle school.

In school we are doing a section on the holocaust. My teacher read us the story Terrible Things. I thought it gave an excellent example of what really happened. It gives children and adults a quick and easy reading about the War, and what happend to the Jewish,in an different way.
