Fantastic literature complement to our history units. Interesting focus on the Roman occupation of Israel during the time of Christ. My kids (ages 8-12) all enjoyed it. The characters are YA age, but younger kids will like it too.
Listened to the fantastic audio version with my kids. Based on a true story, this is a great way to introduce WW2 to a younger audience and older kids will really engage with it too. My kids were sad when it was time to stop listening each day.
Happily married for 16 years, mom to 4 wonderful children, churchgoer, non-practicing librarian and accountant, book fiend, tennis player, homeschooler, genealogist, and if I have time for anything else, I'll be sure to blog about it.
