White Bird: A Wonder Story by R.J. Palacio
White Bird is R.J. Palacio’s graphic novel debut which continues to spread the message of kindness. Julian’s grandmother tells her story growing up during the Nazi invasion of France as a young Jewish girl. Sarah finds refuge in a classmate’s barn where she is protected from Nazi soliders who are determined to arrest all French Jews. It is a touching story of courage, bravery and kindness. Grandmère tells Julian, "It always takes courage to be kind, but in those days, such kindness could cost you everything."
Random House has provided an excellent Teacher Guide and video to use with the book.
