    Paperback ò Milkweed PDF Ð milkweed epub, MilkweedMilkweed KindleI 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 absorb.

    I was immediately drawn to the short sentence structure and quick action. From the beginning, the reader is drawn into an eight year-old orphan boy's innocent view of a world where he must steal, and become virtually invisible, to survive.

    It's a quick read; I read it in one day. It is the boy's innocent and honest view of the world around him during one of the most horrific times in history that kept me turning the pages.

    The boy's innocence and naivete to the chaos and pu

    Paperback ò Milkweed PDF Ð milkweed epub, MilkweedMilkweed KindleI hope that nobody will look at me funny when I say that I love reading WWII/Holocaust stories. I do. I'm drawn to the stories of the people - I want to know what it is in us that makes us so cruel to others. I'm fascinated by people's stories- real or fiction. I don't think that they should be ignored or forgotten, and acknowledgi

    Paperback ò Milkweed PDF Ð milkweed epub, MilkweedMilkweed KindleThis 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 Iraq. 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

    Paperback ò Milkweed PDF Ð milkweed epub, MilkweedMilkweed KindleI love both Maniac Magee and Stargirl, but this book left me cold. I found it unbelievable. I didn't really care about the characters. Spinelli is usually

    Paperback ò Milkweed PDF Ð milkweed epub, MilkweedMilkweed KindleWhat a powerful book. 4.5 stars

    It's so hard to imagine thousands of people being murdered because of the religion they choose to practice. However, as we read today's headlines, and we see people, many of whom are in positions of great power, vilifying all Muslims beca

    Paperback ò Milkweed PDF Ð milkweed epub, MilkweedMilkweed KindleHmm, I don't know. I loved MOST of the book. I grew up trying to learn all I could about war history, so the experiences described in Milkweed were nothing I hadn't read about or seen on film before, but the story of life in N

    Paperback ò Milkweed PDF Ð milkweed epub, MilkweedMilkweed KindleI 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 appropriat

    Paperback ò Milkweed PDF Ð milkweed epub, MilkweedMilkweed KindleI 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 unique 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 th

    Paperback ò Milkweed PDF Ð milkweed epub, MilkweedMilkweed KindleIt's taken me a little while to put into words a review for this book. My son and I have been studying WW2 and the Holocaust. We have read and watched numerous stories, fiction and non fiction pertaining to our unit study. This book is one of the absolute best. Don't get me wrong, the content is difficult, unfathomable and just downright hard to read but if we want to understand history, we can't sugar coat it. My son is 11 and became so deeply enthralled by this story that we ended up reading it every day for hours and hours just to get through to the end. The story, even though it is a work of fiction, will stay with you for a very long time. We even went out and bought a Milkweed plant for our garden after read
