Wondeful story of Nazi ocupied France from a childs perspective.
Reviewed in the United States on August 21, 2016
This story of children during the world war two era really brings home the dangers and struggles of "normal" people in the Nazi Era. The children in the story range in age from 6-11 so the reader can understand their feelings and decisions. A very short read the story moves quick and there is plenty of action with only implied violence.
Originally made for a class to read through in a week there is five med to long chapters with a good breaking point for parent/teacher conversation after each one. There are many Catholic/Christian references in the childrens games which is not surprising considering the era and that they are cared for by a Nun. References easily understood if you know/lookup basic bible stories. Less than 100 pages. Perfect for 7-11 year olds.
