Many students will study the Holocaust. Some might even have relatives who survived or died in the concentration camps. But how many know the other side? Follow the lives of a young Jewish woman and her family and one boy who was a proud member of the Hitler Youth group. Told to Ayer, the alternating chapters show what was happening to both characters at about the same time in history. Told with passion and honesty, Ayer has created a story that you won't forget anytime too soon. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Two different worlds. Two different girls. Beautiful tale of how two girls are trapped by being the best and how one tries to escape. However, as easy as you can flip the book over and read the story in Spanish, you can flip the girls around. So who really is who? ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

A great bedtime story for your little dinosaur. Mark Teague's fun illustrations accent Yolen's silly (but all too true) antics of children before they go to bed. With a good moral lesson, your little dinosaur will want to be like the big dinosaur of this story. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
