Great supplemental materials for Number The Stars by Lois Lowry

Tuesday, July 1

Lois Lowry, one of my favorite authors, has posted what could be some wonderful supplemental material for her Newbery winning book, Number The Stars. A character in the novel, Peter, was inspired by a real person. Lowry's posted excerpts from personal letters Peter wrote during his time imprisoned by the Nazis. [Here's the link to her site]

For anyone who has somehow managed to miss this absolutely amazing book:
From Publishers Weekly: "Set in Nazi-occupied Denmark in 1943, this 1990 Newbery winner tells of a 10-year-old girl who undertakes a dangerous mission to save her best friend. Ages 10-14." It's this and SO much more. Every student should have exposure to this book.
