This HF chapter book written by Lauren Tarshis takes place during WWII. This young boys village is taken over by Nazi‘s and his Jewish best friend has disappeared. Read the story to find out what he does and what his village goes through.
This would be an excellent novel for IR for your students. Once they start the book they won‘t want to put it down!

DezireeLara For the students who don‘t want to read the actual book they can listen to the audio version! https://www.audible.com/author/Lauren-Tarshis/B001JRRKRE 6mo
Macker11 I think these books are a great way to get kids interested in history! They have an intriguing way to express the historical event and make it interesting for kids. The students read it as a chapter book and they don‘t even realize they are actually learning! definitely a good read! 6mo
DrSpalding I really like the idea of audiobooks. Excellent to include this link. I agree, third, fourth and possibly lower level fifth graders will enjoy this series and hopefully not want to put it down. 6mo

In honor of D-Day I listened to these two audiobooks today. I'm thankful for all those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
