Number the Stars by Lois Lowry

Spread the love

Stars: ****1/2

I read this book for the Newbery Project, Book Awards Challenge and Fall Into Reading.

It’s the story of a little girl named AnneMarie in Denmark during the war with the Nazis. Her best friend is Jewish and the Nazis are cracking down.

It’s a very moving story, it does a good job of pulling me in and making me think I’m there. It’s a good way to learn about history without the monotony of school work. (hint for homeschooling families) It succeeded in showing that times then were scary but is not too scary for most children 10 and over to handle.

This is the second book by Lois Lowry I’ve read and so far they’ve rated 5 and 4 1/2 stars so I look forward to reading more.
