Product Description:

This 75-page book tells a story of childhood bravery during the German occupation of France during WWII. Ten Jewish children are brought to a school where twenty other children are staying during the war. They forge friendships and play games that involve finding ways of hiding the Jewish children. When Nazis come to search the school, the games end and the children have to band together to protect themselves and their friends. This wonderful story of courage and loyalty includes several black and white illustrations. ~ Rachel S.

Category Description for STUDY GUIDES & BOOKS:

Please note that a brief synopsis of many of the books included here are provided in our Library Builders section. Study guides for the same book are often available from several publishers, so we found it more efficient to give a description of the book only once.

Category Description for Logos Reading and Comprehension Series:

If given a choice, most young readers will choose a book over a "reader" style collection of stories. Why? The stories are interesting, the illustrations engaging, and they seem more "manageable". Okay, so why not teach reading comprehension and beginning literature skills using wonderful children's books? Maybe because you don't want to invest in study guides for each book. Or maybe because you think there needs to be just a little more organized coverage of skills than you might come up with on your own. Or, maybe you just haven't found the right resource. Well, Logos Press has answered all these "maybes" by creating worksheets to go along with some great children's literature. These reproducible worksheets are compiled into spiral bound books and incorporate both the answers and notes for the teacher. Children have seven kinds of questions to answer: matching, multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, drawing a picture, listing, vocabulary definitions, and essay-type. Beginning Literature 1 and 2 includes worksheets for each book plus a sample reading comprehension worksheet that functions as a book report form identifying and describing main characters as well as listing the book's happenings at the beginning, middle, and end. These worksheets provide an excellent introduction to literature studies and reading comprehension by encouraging both thinking about the reading selection and expressing those thoughts in a cohesive manner. A grading label (for reading, English, and spelling) is included on each worksheet. The teacher's instructions include guidelines for grading, and a complete answer key is included.

This is an incredible true short story! While it may be a 6th grade reading level I read it aloud to my 4 and 5 year old boys and they loved it! The first time through I read the five chapters in one day because they kept begging for more Since then they've asked me to read it again It really ties in the persecution of the Jews from Jesus' times and its similarity to WWII It is intense though it didn't scare my kids We had to stop often to talk about cruelty and loyalty and generosity It conveyed food shortage so that my kids could begin to grasp what it might be like It also ended beautifully in a way that had everyone laughing and smiling! I think it's a great book to introduce the seriousness of war and persecution while showing children's bravery and joy to be triumphant I'm sure we will enjoy this book as a family for many years to come
