Yellow Star

Yellow Star - Jennifer Roy Based on true events, 'Yellow Star' is the story of the Perlmutter family's survival in the Lodz, Poland ghetto during WWII. The story is told by the youngest child, Syvia. It is at turns hopeful, heartbreaking, and brave. This novel is written in a free verse style, which makes for lovely reading aloud. I read this with my 11-year-old daughter, who was both entranced and upset by the story. This story introduces middle grade readers to the atrocities of the Nazi regime.
