     Number the Stars- A novel about WWII  

    Number the Stars, Lois Lowry

    Number the Stars, by Lois Lowry, won the Newbery Award in 1990. This moving, well-written book, helps children to see the effects of courage and caring. The factually-based story is set in Denmark during World War II and tells of that country's efforts to save their Jewish citizens. Two young girls are the focus - each having poignant tales to tell. Look at our collection of ideas and resources to enhance this important book.
