This book is part of our Core A Sonlight curriculum. This was a great story to talk about the struggles of WWII with kids on their level. I really enjoyed reading it, even again after 2 years. My kids enjoyed it as well and helped us to talk a little about the Holocaust, even at their young ages. It was also good for discussing how to make decisions in hard circumstances as they are learning right from wrong in more abstract ways. Some scenes are a little intense so if you have sensitive children, be aware of that. I would recommend this book for most ages.
