Read in April, 2012

If I taught 4th or 5th graders, this would definitely be my go-to book for not only Holocaust related literature, but research skills. Teaching adolescents about research can be a very monotonous task. I can just imagine staring out into a class of 35 hyperactive, 12-year-olds explaining the repercussions of plagiarism and the definition of peer reviewed. Tedious indeed. But research can be so fun, in fact, it is something that I do often and with enthusiasm as an adult. Maybe I read too much Nancy Drew as a child, but I love research and a book like Hana's Suitcase: A True Story hits right on the appeal of finding and perpetuating truth, which in the case of the Holocaust, despite so many books on the topic, leaves so many stories yet to be told.
