Number the Stars

Number the Stars - Lois Lowry

     When the German troops threaten their way of life, Annemarie Johansen's family takes in her best friend, Ellen Rosen, and conceals her as part of the family. We watch as the Danish Resistance moves almost the entire Jewish population out of Denmark and across the sea to Sweden. This book is all about the struggles Annemarie's family faced.

      This books reading level is ages 10 and up making it a more mature read. A great way to use this book in your classroom is to discuss Germany and World War II. What challenges did the family have to face? Was this normal? Open a discussion for the struggles during World War II.
