Irena's Jar of Secrets
Irena's Jars of Secrets is a picture book but definitely not for young children. It tells the story of Irena Sendler - a Catholic social worker who rescued Jewish children from the Ghetto in Poland. Although told as gently as possible, I would recommend this book for ages 8+ and remind parents that they know their child best when selecting reading material. Irena's Jars of Secrets would be a great book for upper elementary students when studying World War II and the Holocaust especially in a Catholic school.
I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy of Irena's Jar of Secrets available via NetGalley.
