Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
If you are planning to introduce the Holocaust to children, picture books make a good beginning. The most comforting books are those that hold some kind of hope. This book is an allegory of the holocaust, where a small questioning rabbit witnesses one animal after another being taken from his peaceful forest.
Church & Synagogue Libraries

“This is an excellent book for sensitizing young people of any denomination to recognize injustice.”—Church & Synagogue Libraries

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.
