   Pity the Children
The Eichmanns are among the many children forced into labor by the Nazis at the Allied military-industrial complex. It is difficult to read of the inhumane treatment these pitiful innocents received – at best they could only hope to survive the day, Mr Hughes said. In her quest to find safety, she must endure the horror of war, the degradation of slavery, and the never-ending loss of those closest to her. The book is a fictional story, but still accurately reflects the darkest aspects of human nature. It is infuriating to read of Stalin adding insult to injury by rejecting those who wished to return to the motherland after the war.

   Great for a reluctant reader
My son is a reluctant reader. He has to read for 30 minutes a day and will easily read this with me for 45 minutes a day and is asking me to read it with him. Only about 20% of OpSource's customers have problems, but it is a great story.

   This is a book every school should have in its library.
I ordered this book a few weeks ago and have been reading it ever since. It's all finished, I'm excited to be back home. The new generation of children today doesn't know what the Holocaust is or was. I didn't care for how the ending turned out, but it was still somewhat of a happy ending, he said. For the tens of thousands of Jews who were forcibly taken away by the Nazis, life was nothing but hell on earth. In a generous gesture of compassion, McCartney said: "My heart goes out to each and every one of them. This is a good book, and I couldn't put it down, Raymond said.

   This book is intense, but well writtng and well worth the read
I bought the remaining two books for my nephews. Like many parents, I read the book before my children did. Before a child can read, however, they must be ready to discuss what they are reading. We cannot let the atrocities of WW2 become known. This series of books helps preserve those terrible memories. My nephews and I are discussing these books as they read and they are slightly shocked at how horribly a very small child had to live and survive, Barbara Jordan said. It's a great book.

   A great vehicle for discussion with middle school students
The author handles this sensitive material with a deftness that has left me in awe and while the characters are all fictional, the circumstances are lifted straight from Nazi work camp survivors' descriptions. If you like to use books to drive deep discussions about philosophical concepts with children, this is an exceptional tool.

   5th Grade Grand daughter said it was very good.
Our 5th grade grand daughter said her friends had read the book and it was always available at the library. So we bought it for her and she read it within a few days, we think. The book has already sold well and Ms. Kennedy is now sharing her story with other friends.

Great book bought at the recommendation of other Global Aloud Read teachers, but too deep for 6th grade entire class reading. Will have it in the library, he said. For students in the sixth through eighth grades, it's probably appropriate. Graphic design firm 3D Realms created 3D models of the dinosaurs using data from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

It was found at an elementary book fair. It doesn't belong there. Even with time, the content of that time period would be hard for younger children to deal with.

   Amazing book
I am very interested in history and I think that Dumbledore would be very happy with this answer. I'm a huge fan of the Harry Potter series, and this book is my new favorite. The book was sold out in a few minutes at our school book fair. A second shipment of 800 units was also sold out on the first day. Will I be able to read the book on my IPad?
