Non-fiction book review - Jars of Hope
Title: Jars of Hope
Author: Jennifer Roy
We need to hear more stories like this one, more stories of everyday people who did extraordinarily dangerous things simply because it is the right thing to do. This one is particularly suited to upper elementary kids with simple vocabulary and sentence structure. Each page has a short paragraph of text supported by a full page illustration. Books like this one are great to use when you first introduce young children to the history of the Holocaust. While it is horrific, that horror can be somewhat balanced by stories of bravery and kindness and renewed faith in humanity.
