    i read this in hardback, when it first came out, and i'd say it was probably the reason i became addicted to WWII/holocaust literature/history at such a young age. i think it helped that i was so young when i read this, as imagining a ten year old standing up to nazis was something...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this beautifully written Historical Fiction story which I believe was written for children and yet adults may well find it such a worthwhile and enjoyable read as well The evacuation of Jews from Nazi-held Denmark is one of the great untold stories of World War ...

    I know- I can't believe I'm just now reading this. What kind of a children's librarian am I? This is a nice little story about a family who smuggles some Jewish friends out of Denmark during the Nazi occupation in 1943. I always avoided reading this because it looked depressing, but...

    C. S. Lewis famously wrote something to the effect that a children's book so bland and simplistic that it could appeal only to children probably has nothing of much real worth to offer to a child reader, either. He was right; the best and truest (in the sense of Mary E. Wilkins' Freema...

    Yes the target audience is young adults but I as an old adult found it an amazing and educational story of the Nazi occupation of Denmark. From the Afterword, a part of a letter written by a young man from the Resistance to his mother, on the eve of his execution: "You must not d...

    A delicately written and touchingly poignant book. Several moments made my eyes well-up (how I loved that dear Papa!). As usual, a child?s viewpoint is one of the most gripping and beautiful ways to tell a story set in WW2 as we are gaze with the bland honesty and persistent spirit o...

    Is it just me, or do most books about Jewish girls during World War II suck? I'm serious, it's like this book and "Summer of my German Soldier" were written with the same purpose in mind: educate students about the Holocaust in just about the most boring way possible. Thank God there's...

    This is a safe, easy way for children to be introduced to a little of what happened during the holocaust. When I was growing up, one of my mother?s friends was from Denmark (she traveled back there once a year), and she was very proud of how her homeland had behaved during World War ...

    Five glorious stars! This book was incredible!!! Lois Lowry did an excellent job of writing a WWII book and make it for a younger audience! But honestly anyone can enjoy it! Just the themes throughout this book and diversity is beautiful! Lois Lowry is probably one of my new favorite a...

    4.5 stars for this jewel. One reason I enjoy historical fiction is the educational aspect; learning about something for the first time. This is not your typical WWII/Holocaust book. This one tells the story of how the Danish people, after their small country was invaded by Germany, smu...

    I guess I am destined to love all the books with the concept of WW-I and WW-II. The story gave insights of how people lived in Denmark in back those days. With simple language, the author is succeeded in making beginners about WWs understand what was the scenario back then. The ...

    There was something so... sweet and innocent about the tone of this book, even in the midst of the terrible things going on all around Annemarie, the 10-year-old protagonist. I suppose a lot of that comes from her age, and the fact that this was written for children, but as I read it I...

    Number the Stars by Lois Lowry takes place in Denmark during World War II and the Holocaust. The story begins with an introduction to the cruelty of German soldiers who are occupying Denmark, the story's heroine, Annemarie, her younger (and more bratty), and her best friend Ellen Rosen...

    Story takes place in 1943, Nazi occupied Denmark, we follow story of ten year old Annemarie and her best friend, Ellen, who is jewish. This is story all about what danish people did to protect their jewish friends and neighbors. Its a short story but still had a great story line. Rea...

    A very good YA story about a Danish family secretly working with the resistance to help their Jewish friends escape the Nazis. I realistic and gentle enough for younger adolescents introduction to the Holocaust. Wonderful examples of courage, loyalty, friendship and family. ...

    On the back of the library's copy of this book is a review from The Horn Book Magazine that says "the whole book is seamless, compelling, and memorable -- impossible to put down; difficult to forget." Well, I was about to put that bold statement to the test: "difficult to forget," huh?...

    Reading first few lines of the book made me think that I?m going to love this book. And yes I did! I always feel sad after reading books related to Nazi invasion. But this book left me with some beautiful feelings! It is a gleaming jewel which tells a story of a brave 10 years old...

    I love books about WWII and this has been one of my favorites since I read it in 6th grade! ...

    4.5 stars Such a powerful story that can be enjoyed at any age. Weather you're reading this to your 5 year old or you're reading it at age 55, you can still learn from and enjoy this wonderful book. ...

    Whoa, that was awesome! The cover doesn't represent it very well, so I was a little surprised. I expected it to be dramatic and maybe even a little scary. And yes, it was a bit frightening at times and it was intense, but ... it was also really sweet. Annemarie's voice was quite adorab...

    I love Lois Lowry. The Giver is one of my all-time favorite books. She has a way of explaining a complex idea or lesson in a simple, but not at all dumbed down way. Lowry's story of a young girl living in Denmark during the Nazi occupation, and trying to understand who the Nazis are an...

    i read this in hardback, when it first came out, and i'd say it was probably the reason i became addicted to WWII/holocaust literature/history at such a young age. i think it helped that i was so young when i read this, as imagining a ten year old standing up to nazis was something...

    I know- I can't believe I'm just now reading this. What kind of a children's librarian am I? This is a nice little story about a family who smuggles some Jewish friends out of Denmark during the Nazi occupation in 1943. I always avoided reading this because it looked depressing, but...

    Yes the target audience is young adults but I as an old adult found it an amazing and educational story of the Nazi occupation of Denmark. From the Afterword, a part of a letter written by a young man from the Resistance to his mother, on the eve of his execution: "You must not d...

    A delicately written and touchingly poignant book. Several moments made my eyes well-up (how I loved that dear Papa!). As usual, a child?s viewpoint is one of the most gripping and beautiful ways to tell a story set in WW2 as we are gaze with the bland honesty and persistent spirit o...

    Is it just me, or do most books about Jewish girls during World War II suck? I'm serious, it's like this book and "Summer of my German Soldier" were written with the same purpose in mind: educate students about the Holocaust in just about the most boring way possible. Thank God there's...

    This is a safe, easy way for children to be introduced to a little of what happened during the holocaust. When I was growing up, one of my mother?s friends was from Denmark (she traveled back there once a year), and she was very proud of how her homeland had behaved during World War ...

    There was something so... sweet and innocent about the tone of this book, even in the midst of the terrible things going on all around Annemarie, the 10-year-old protagonist. I suppose a lot of that comes from her age, and the fact that this was written for children, but as I read it I...

    Yes the target audience is young adults but I as an old adult found it an amazing and educational story of the Nazi occupation of Denmark. From the Afterword, a part of a letter written by a young man from the Resistance to his mother, on the eve of his execution: "You must not d...

    A delicately written and touchingly poignant book. Several moments made my eyes well-up (how I loved that dear Papa!). As usual, a child?s viewpoint is one of the most gripping and beautiful ways to tell a story set in WW2 as we are gaze with the bland honesty and persistent spirit o...

    Is it just me, or do most books about Jewish girls during World War II suck? I'm serious, it's like this book and "Summer of my German Soldier" were written with the same purpose in mind: educate students about the Holocaust in just about the most boring way possible. Thank God there's...

    This is a safe, easy way for children to be introduced to a little of what happened during the holocaust. When I was growing up, one of my mother?s friends was from Denmark (she traveled back there once a year), and she was very proud of how her homeland had behaved during World War ...

    i read this in hardback, when it first came out, and i'd say it was probably the reason i became addicted to WWII/holocaust literature/history at such a young age. i think it helped that i was so young when i read this, as imagining a ten year old standing up to nazis was something...

    I know- I can't believe I'm just now reading this. What kind of a children's librarian am I? This is a nice little story about a family who smuggles some Jewish friends out of Denmark during the Nazi occupation in 1943. I always avoided reading this because it looked depressing, but...

    Please visit my blog www.readrantrockandroll.com for reviews on children's books like this regarding the Holocaust and WWII Number the Stars by Lois Lowry is a book I read years ago. It's historical fiction but highlights the horror of WWII. It's a meaningful story that demonstrates...

    Yes the target audience is young adults but I as an old adult found it an amazing and educational story of the Nazi occupation of Denmark. From the Afterword, a part of a letter written by a young man from the Resistance to his mother, on the eve of his execution: "You must not d...

    A delicately written and touchingly poignant book. Several moments made my eyes well-up (how I loved that dear Papa!). As usual, a child?s viewpoint is one of the most gripping and beautiful ways to tell a story set in WW2 as we are gaze with the bland honesty and persistent spirit o...

    Is it just me, or do most books about Jewish girls during World War II suck? I'm serious, it's like this book and "Summer of my German Soldier" were written with the same purpose in mind: educate students about the Holocaust in just about the most boring way possible. Thank God there's...

    This is a safe, easy way for children to be introduced to a little of what happened during the holocaust. When I was growing up, one of my mother?s friends was from Denmark (she traveled back there once a year), and she was very proud of how her homeland had behaved during World War ...

    I rarely read classic books nowadays. Seeing as my mom's idea of educational learning was to shove classic books down my throat (note: The first novel I finished reading was The Complete Sherlock Holmes and I was fucking eight years old) I have to say that it's understandable if I stee...

    Five glorious stars! This book was incredible!!! Lois Lowry did an excellent job of writing a WWII book and make it for a younger audience! But honestly anyone can enjoy it! Just the themes throughout this book and diversity is beautiful! Lois Lowry is probably one of my new favorite a...

    4.5 stars for this jewel. One reason I enjoy historical fiction is the educational aspect; learning about something for the first time. This is not your typical WWII/Holocaust book. This one tells the story of how the Danish people, after their small country was invaded by Germany, smu...

    I guess I am destined to love all the books with the concept of WW-I and WW-II. The story gave insights of how people lived in Denmark in back those days. With simple language, the author is succeeded in making beginners about WWs understand what was the scenario back then. The ...

    There was something so... sweet and innocent about the tone of this book, even in the midst of the terrible things going on all around Annemarie, the 10-year-old protagonist. I suppose a lot of that comes from her age, and the fact that this was written for children, but as I read it I...

    Number the Stars by Lois Lowry takes place in Denmark during World War II and the Holocaust. The story begins with an introduction to the cruelty of German soldiers who are occupying Denmark, the story's heroine, Annemarie, her younger (and more bratty), and her best friend Ellen Rosen...

    Story takes place in 1943, Nazi occupied Denmark, we follow story of ten year old Annemarie and her best friend, Ellen, who is jewish. This is story all about what danish people did to protect their jewish friends and neighbors. Its a short story but still had a great story line. Rea...

    A very good YA story about a Danish family secretly working with the resistance to help their Jewish friends escape the Nazis. I realistic and gentle enough for younger adolescents introduction to the Holocaust. Wonderful examples of courage, loyalty, friendship and family. ...

    On the back of the library's copy of this book is a review from The Horn Book Magazine that says "the whole book is seamless, compelling, and memorable -- impossible to put down; difficult to forget." Well, I was about to put that bold statement to the test: "difficult to forget," huh?...

    Whoa, that was awesome! The cover doesn't represent it very well, so I was a little surprised. I expected it to be dramatic and maybe even a little scary. And yes, it was a bit frightening at times and it was intense, but ... it was also really sweet. Annemarie's voice was quite adorab...
