Looking for a story about courage to read to your child? One that instills character by virtue of its essence, and not by sermonizing? I always am, and this old favorite (read to me when I was nine) is luckily still in print.
During the Nazi occupation of France, twenty ordinary French kids in a boarding school agree to hide ten Jewish children Then German soldiers arrive. Will the children be able to withstand the interrogation and harassment?
Twenty and Ten is based on a true story -- one of many similar incidents that took place all over Europe during World War II. It is a book that has much to say to children of any age. -- A reader
