Book Gems

It’s time again for this week’s Book Gems post.  I read the book, I Am David last week and it was a really touching book about a boy who escapes from a concentration camp. Written from his perspective, this book moves you as you travel with David on his amazing journey across Europe.  I highly recommend this book!

“The sun glistened on a drop of water as it fell from his hand to his knee. David wiped it off, but it left no tidemark: there was no more dirt to rub away. He took a deep breath and shivered. He was David. Everything else was washed away, the camp, its smell, its touch–and now he was David, his own master, free–free as long as he could remain so.”
— Anne Holm (I Am David)
