Reviews

Historical settings are well researched and vivid...characters and plot are at the forefront.

Kacer's taut recounting of the grim background story highlights the brave gallantry of the children.

The book can also be an inspiration for children about how the human spirit can triumph over adversity.

The simple yet poignant style holds your attention.

We need a book like this that reminds us there is always hope and the human spirit will always survive.

Copies of the original editions and black-and-white photos salvaged from the war add to this incredible piece of Holocaust history.

Readers will gain knowledge of the events that occurred during the beginning of World War II through the eyes of ordinary people.

The Underground Reporters is an amazing story about survival, rather than death.

Kacer makes these children come alive, leading her readers into the story as if it were a novel, while commemorating the lives of the kids.

The undying spirit of the Jewish people during those dreadful times is emphasized, and descriptions of life in the camps are excellent.

This story is well-written and interesting, and meets the equity test.

A rich assortment of photographs and maps helps young readers connect with the people and places described in the book.

Interspersed with black-and-white photographs, stories and artwork from the newspapers is a riveting story of courage.
