Lois Lowry ☆ Number the Stars READER

Number the StarsTen year old Annemarie Johansen and her best friend Ellen Rosen often think of life before the war It's now 1943 and their life in Cope See of my reviews at wwwbookaddicthavencomThe second of the books that we listened to on my recent multi generational girls road trip was 'Number the Stars' I could not have chosen better This story was suspenseful educational and deeply emotional With an age range of 5 years old to 88 years old in the car this book managed to hold all of attentionLike most readers I've read plenty of books set during the WWII era Some were graphic and shocking in their descriptions of the horrendous acts that took place Others like 'Number the Stars' go a far subtle route choosing to leave much to your imagination while providing just enough information so that the reader can figure out exactly what is going on With two children in the car subtle and less graphic was an obvious benefit However I was amazed by the depth of understanding my 9 year old had of the story that unfolded I was incredibly impressed by the way the author was able to craft a story that appealed to such a broad audience Set in a German occupied Denmark in WWII 'Number the Stars' tells the story of a teenaged Annemarie Johansen She and her family helped rescue her best friend Ellen Rosen and her family The two girls had grown up together Like their daughters the parents were best friends also having been neighbors for yearsWhen the German occupation becomes increasingly hostile the writing is on the wall for the Jews The Johansen's are ordinary people that took extraordinary risks to stand against injustice in the only way they knew how They become active in the resistance movement helping to smuggle targeted groups of people to safetyI don't want to give too much away because this is a story that I believe should be read and experienced by everyone I will say that it was deeply sentimental and thought provoking There was plenty of action and suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat but nothing too terrifying or gory for children This is the first WWII book that I've read about the Danish resistance movement I greatly enjoyed learning about the Danish culture and the role that Denmark played in WWII The stories about the King of Denmark were especially inspiring Mostly this story was inspirational It is about everyday people that do incredibly courageous things when backed into a corner It is about the strength of the human spirit This is the kind of book that makes you reevaluate your values and what you consider important in life Everyone needs a reminder every once in a while especially as the holidays approach I loved every minute of this story It is another one that should probably make the mandatory reading list for school aged children lest we forget the lessons of the past The audio was fabulous as well I highly recommend this book to everyone
