    Number the Stars eBook ✓ Number the PDF or number ebok, stars book, Number the pdf, Number the StarsNumber the Stars KindleLowry doesn t waste a word in NUMBER THE STARS, starting with Annemarie and Ellen s frightening run in with German soldiers in the opening chapter In quick strokes, Lowry establishes the setting and characters and foreshadows Annemarie s subsequent encounters with soldiers, each of which increases the tension The symbol of stars weaves in and out When the crowd of escaping Jews gathers, they are comforted with the words of Psalm 147 O praise the Lord he who numbers the stars one by one How can anyone number the stars Annemarie wonders.My favorite part of the book is when Ellen and AnneMarie are looking out over the bay and they say that s Swedan over there The fact that they talk about Swedan shows me that they are hopeful, curious, and anxious.Anyone who is interested i
