Number the Stars
by Lois Lowry
Number the Stars 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.
