safety despite having to hide deeper and deeper into the woods for weeks I can make a text to self connection with this story I immediately connected with the little girl s fascination and reverence for the angels she saw in Europe I felt the same way during our military tour overseas As I walked the ancient streets and marveled at the intricate architecture I became fascinated with the angels myself I searched them out and could not believe how varied and beautiful the workmanship was and how protected they made me feel Stone Angel shows children many aspects of the French culture before and during the war The pictures show the architecture and clothes, and the story tells of daily walks to the markets, the foods, and the fear, strength and resolve of the people of Paris There is also a brief glimpse into British culture when the story setting moves to England Nazi culture is portrayed only as the bad men and the brown shirts This is probably appropriate given the intended audience

in Paris at the beginning of the Nazi occupation of France The family flees to the woods to escape, but the daughter is not worried because she believes that angels will protect them When the occupation is over, they return to Paris from England, where they have been living with their cousin Jacob, and their new apartment at 57 Rue de Turbigo has an angel present The artwork is wonderful Characters are not stereotypical and do not offend Much of it is gloomy, except for the time when they are in Paris before the occupation, when they are in England and when they return to Paris Be sure to read A Note From the Author Interesting information is provided including the admission that there is an actual stone angel at 57 Rue de Turbigo I found a photo of the angel online, but could not locate it on Google Maps A story of love and hate, fear and courage A Jewish girl and her family have to run away into the French woods to hide from the Nazi soldiers All the while, she is certain that their stars of David mean that angels are watching over them As the soldiers get closer and closer, the family escapes to Spain over the mountains and sails to England where they live with her uncle After the war, she with many others, sail home to France There she finds a stone angel watching over their new apartmen A story of love and hate, fear and courage A Jewish girl and her family

closer, the family escapes to Spain over the mountains and sails to England where they live with her uncle After the war, she with many others, sail home to France There she finds a stone angel watching over their new apartment building notes WW2 story about a Jewish family in France opinion superficially discusses the Nazi s in a way that allows the adult reader to delveor less into the topic but by itself could be kind of vague and confusing. Perfectly fine, a bit naive, but therefore a good introduction to the Holocaust Nothing really new or fresh Would purchase if I neededWWII Holocaust picture books. Wonderful sensory descriptions in this beautifully written Holocaust fictional story Perfect introduction to this difficult time in history with its message of hope and resilience.
