I love books about World War 2, but this book isn't for me although it is still good.
Good Points
When I read this book it didn't make me want to keep reading. I have to admit it is a good book, but it just isn't my style. Anyways I think this is a great topic for kids wanting to read a lil more!

Number the Stars by Lois Lowry is a magnificent book that will not only inspire Jewish people, but can inspire anybody around the world. This universal book tells the story of a girl who has to keep her best friend, who happens to be Jewish, hidden during the Holocaust. Copenhagen, Denmark is where this story takes place. During the Holocaust people of Denmark were captured if the German soldiers found out they were Jewish. Number the Stars tells the story of two best friends and how one of them is trying to get to freedom in Sweden.

Number the Stars starts off during Passover (a Jewish Holiday).  The main character doesn't understand why her grandfather act so weird.  (why can't they get over the holocaust).  When she opens the door she goes back in time and .... You will have to read it to find out.  When she returns she has a new insight to what her grandfather went through and why he acts the way he does.

This story takes place in Denmark during the Nazi invasion. Annemarie is a ten year old girl who's best friend is Jewish. When the Nazi's come searching for her friends family, Annemarie will have to be strong and brave to protect her friend.

This was a good topic, but I felt like it could have been more exciting. The topic is scary, so it could have been more exciting, but there wasn't enough suspence. There wasn't really a good problem in this book.There was danger, but there wasn't exactly a problem. Overall, this will let you see more what it was like in the Nazi invasioin, so it is interesting, but it's just not that exciting.

I red this book for school and imediatlly fell in love with it. The story tells about annemarie Johansen and her Jewish freind, Ellen Rosen during the early 1940s. Annemarie and her family must save Ellen, her family and many others from being "relocated" by the Nazis. This was deffinatley one of my favorite books and I really reccomend it.

After reading The Giver, I had to read more from Lois Lowry. I found this book and read it in a day.

This is a true story that Lowry fictionalized. It takes place in 1943 in Denmark during the 2nd World War. It tells the tale of a ten year old girl, Annemarie, and her family as they try to help the Annemarie's Jewish friend, Ellen, get out of the Nazi-held country.

I cried during this but I also rooted for teh good guys. This is a story that will make you want to pop open the history books and read up on things you thought were boring at first.

It's a timeless story and won the Newbery Medal in 1990l.

I read this book last year in Miss.Breslin's class. Some parts were hard to bear and things were hard for people. We are taught to be nice, so things like The Holocaust and Slavery don't happen. People were taken from their homes and used as slaves, both were hgorrible times.+

This story is about a girl named Annemarie, and her best friend Ellen. This story takes place in Denmark in 1943. Ellen is Jewish and needs to hide from the Nazis or they will relocate her to a concentraioin camp. This book tells what courage it took to hide from the nazis and to hide them. This book was very intese and sad

Number the Stars is a brilliant, inspiring, suspensful book. This book is so good it deserves to have a sequel. This book is not fact after fact after fact, but a story with historical fiction in a story. I would recommend this book to anyone I met. Lowry created a masterpiece when she wrote this marvoleous book. I guarantee it will captivate, entertain, and teach your mind things. I just can not tell you how good this book is. There is no word that can describe this excellent book. I really hope you read this book.
