This is a touching, emotional book. It's fantastic and provides a great introduction to a difficult topic.


I love Her books. This is by far my favourite of hers.


I thought this book was filled of history but was also very fun to read and in my case it is really hard to interest me in historically fun books so thumbs up Lois Lowry!

Number the Stars

This book was so intense and I was really freaked out about the soldiers. If I was a Jew, I would want to have switched my religion before I got caught. Lois Lowry did an excellent job of descriptive details and really pulling the reader into the book.


This is an EXTREMELY good but youth level book on the Nazis, WWII, and the Holocaust.

Number The Stars

A sad but beautiful book.


This is a wonderful book for introducing children to the Holocaust. It's better for children who are a little older, but it's gentle enough to act as a starter book for kids learning about WWII.

Historical fun

I L-O-V-E love this book! It is fun and has a wonderful rescue. It is a tale of friendship and trust. Must read this with a capital EVERYTHING!!!!!!!

it was sad but good


If anyone wrote another book detailing the Nazis in non-textbook format, this book probably would be better than it. AKA this book is AWESOME!
