Wonderful
I read this aloud to my 8 and 6 year old boys. We loved it and I think this is my favorite story I have read them aloud so far. So many nuggets of truth and lessons to be talked about in this book along with a wonderful story.

This is one of my favorite historical fiction books yet! My 13 yr old son and 7 yr old daughter loved it also We all refer to it often Hilda Von Stockum is a wonderful author and we have enjoyed all her writings in our homeschool but this one holds a special place in our hearts A great supplement to your study of World War 2 that will cause this period of history to come alive for you and your children I loved learning more about Dutch life also What a quaint and fascinating culture they had You can also use this book to vault into a study of Dutch geography as it goes into the lay of the land and much more! The more I think about it this book would make a great core for a unit study! However you decide to use this book in your homeschool it will be an eye-opening and attention-getting look at this time and place in history!
