Book Reviews by You!

Number the Stars by Lois Lowry

Set in the 1940's, Number the Stars, is about a young girl Annemarie who tries to save the life of her best friend, Ellen.

Joselynn Cruz, 5th grade reviewer, says she loves this book because it taught her things she never knew. The author used so many details to describe what life was like in Denmark in the 1940's. It is a heartwarming story. She recommends this book to anyone who likes books about wars, history or enjoys emotional stories.
