Irena Sendler, a "Righteous Gentile" who helped save around 2500 Jewish children out of Warsaw during World War II. I have read many accounts of her life and work - picture books and some others. All tell of her work and accomplishments. For some reason though none seem to hit just the right note for the audience I particularly read for. This book was factual and informational but not sure how many kids would be drawn in by the way the material was presented. If kids were really invested in the topic they would stick with it but...
It's a shame because Irena's story is fascinating.
