Ds read Boy in the Striped Pyjamas a few years ago. Had some questions which I answered as honestly as I could in a way I felt suitable for a 6 year old.
I do a fortnightly trawl around charity shops for books for him. Two turned up today amongst others. Hitler's Canary and Henderson's Boys - The Escape. Both related to the Second World War.
I plan on reading them before handing them over but wanted to know if anyone here had read them or given them to their DC of a similar age. What you thought of the books and what questions arose as a result. I usually think if you're old enough to ask you're old enough to know, but I don't think that applies when presenting DS with what potentially could be upsetting concepts such as Holocaust and persecution in detail.
