Each Little Bird That  Sings

 

By Deborah Wiles

 “I come from a family with a LOT of dead people.” This attention getting lead draws readers into the life of a 10 year old girl by the name of Comfort Snowberger. Comfort's extended family runs the town's funeral home. Through Comfort's eyes we learn about life, death, family, friendship and community.

 

Deborah Wiles strong descriptive writing pulls readers into the lives of her richly created characters.

 

 Milkweed

 

by Jerry Spinelli

Jerry Spinelli is one of my favorite children's authors. He is the king of "show, don't tell". In this powerful book, Spinelli shows the reader what it was like to live through World War II as a child in the Warsaw ghetto. You will experience many historical events through the main character, Misha. When you have finished this book you will know how it felt to be a Jew in Nazi controlled Poland.

 

Read a wonderful interview with the author about writing this book.
