Excellent Historical Fiction

by VoraciousReader on Aug 28, 2009

Ten-year-olds Annemarie and her friend Ellen are living in Denmark during World War II. Ellen and her family are Jewish and are eventually forced to flee to Sweden with the help of the Danish Resistance and Annemarie. Although she is portrayed as the heroine of the story, Annemarie struggles with being brave and learns that sometimes you can be brave even when you're afraid. This is an excellent story (winner of a Newberry) with engaging characters and many historical details, showing the effects of the Holocaust through the eyes of a ten-year-old girl.

I loved this book!

by Christopher on Aug 9, 2007

I first read this book in elementary school. I enjoyed it so much that I got a copy of it. I have no complaints. This book is a classic!

Excellent

by KarenE on Apr 10, 2007

My kids were captivated by this book, kept in suspense, and horrified by Nazi cruelty. Though nothing is graphic, details of some deaths are ... blunt. Hard for my tenderhearted children to take, but it was handled well. Highlights, according to my kids: *Brash little five-year-old Kirsti *Identifying with AnneMarie, who just knew that her life was far too ordinary for her to ever be called on to do something courageous, and being glad of that. *Suspense ... just enough to make it thrilling *A mostly happy ending for our favorite characters, though not for everyone There's a terrific afterword in which the author sifts through what was true and what was fiction. We learned some staggering facts: in 1943, in a matter of weeks, about 7,000 Jews were smuggled out of Denmark, to safety in Sweden. And there's a detail, too crucial to the plot and suspense for me to reveal it, that sounds like fantastic fiction, but was actually true. Number the Stars is a "must include" in any WWII unit for children.
