O wants to be a Nazi some day with tall shiny jackboots and a gleaming Eagle hat of his own Until the day that suddenly makes him change his mind And when the trains come to empty the Jews from the ghetto of the damned he’s a boy who realizes it’s safest of. I loved loved this book It was so well written and I completely fell in love with the characters I wanted to leap through the pages and save them all I have read some of this author s other works with my boys when they were young He writes youth fiction and is always age appropriate But I haven t loved his other books like I love this one I wish I had come across this particular book when I used to read to my boys It would have brought about a great discussion that would surely have given them food for thought regarding WWII and the lives of children I give this book 5 stars for many reasons It was well written it was age appropriate it had a great message it kept me interested and the author nailed the basic nature of humans in each character whether good or bad I usually never read reviews before I have written my own I can t believe how many people have written that this wasn t the best book they have ever read on the WWII and the persecution of Jews when they were not the intended target audience for this book It wasn t meant to be the best book ever written on WWII or the holocaust I think Spinelli accomplished the telling of this awful time in history in a manner in which kids would understand and even sympathize with without scaring them for life And I think that is saying a lot especially when I consider some the inappropriate books my kids have been given to read over the years Just sayin

Milkweed

All to be nobodyNewbery Medalist Jerry Spinelli takes us to one of the most devastating settings imaginable Nazi occupied Warsaw of World War II and tells a tale of heartbreak hope and survival through the bright eyes of a young orphan From the Hardcover edition. I would venture that this is a read alike for The Boy in the Striped Pajamas Set in Poland during World War II Milkweed is told through the uniue perspective of one of those lost through the cracks kids Our MC Misha for all intents and purposes is a thief a runner an orphan a gypsy with no memory of his life before the story begins He steals food to survive and has zero awareness of what is going on in his little world outside of the speeding images that he runs past daily Misha stumbles upon a group of boys thieves like himself and learns a bit about what is happening and what it means The imagery is startling in it s youthful metaphors and innocence Spinelli uses Misha s voice to show us what the world looked like and what it truly means to be invisible This is one of those books that reminds me I m a monster or that I have broken eyes or some such thing I bet this book makes loads of people cry but not me my eyes were bone dry

He’s a boy called Jew Gypsy Stopthief Runt Happy Fast Filthy son of Abraham He’s a boy who lives in the streets of Warsaw He’s a boy who steals food for himself and the other orphans He’s a boy who believes in bread and mothers and angels He’s a boy wh. This is the first Jerry Spinelli book that I have read I bought Stargirl at the same time and after reading Milkweed I am excited to start reading Stargirl Spinelli does well to portray the voice of a young orphan boy in Warsaw There are a lot of reviews about this and the book The Boy in the Striped Pajamas that say that it is unbelievable that there were children that did not know what was going on around them I really disagree with these statements I have taught 5th graders and 6th graders that had no idea that we are at war with Ira So I do not personally find it hard to believe that this innocence or lack of knowledge occured even during the WWII Era with the Jews This was a great book about friendship and the importance of families no matter who they are make up of I think that it also shows us the importance of belonging Misha really didn t care about what group thieves orphans Jews Jackboots he belonged in he just wanted to belong

    I initially read this book to determine whether it was appropriate for my 11 year old daughter to read Although it is considered a YA novel any book fiction or non fiction with a theme centered around the holocaust is a novel I want to preview before allowing my child to absorbI was immediately drawn to the short sentence structure and uick action From the beginning the reader is drawn into an eight year old orphan boy's
