A Summer Read...

I am working on my final weeks of my Children's Literature has been a very tough but fulfilling class. Our final unit is a choice Historical or Realistic Fiction. My personal choice is Historical Fiction. I love books about the lives of people in times past, what could have been, I get lost in the pages.

One of the books I grabbed for this section was Number the Stars by Lois Lowry. It is a juvenile level book so it may be a quick read for some, but what an inspiring story of a Danish family helping to save the many Jewish families from the Nazis during the occupation on WWII.

It's really a great story. Something your preteen might like, too.
