At first, Bruno didn’t liked the idea of leaving because he thought of the people he will leave behind, as well as their neighborhood, and their five-story house. He thought of his best friends namely Karl, Martin, and Daniel, his grandparents, and the people laughing loudly and drinking frothy drinks at the tables set out on the streets of their community. However, despite all the whining to his mom, Maria (their maid), and his dog, Bruno still couldn’t change the fact that he will leave all of his beloved behind. As they’ve come to arrive in their new house, Bruno 's troubles was further increased because his expectations in their new house at Out-With was not met. He described it to be smaller than their old house in Berlin, secluded from other houses, and looks like no amount of happiness could have taken place there.

From all the books we have read in class i have chosen to do Warriors Don 't Cry written by Melba Pattillo Beals and Boy in the Striped Pajamas written by John Boyne. Boy in the Striped Pajamas was placed in Nazi Germany. Nazi Germany was not a great place, it was a hard time not only for the people that were jewish in the concentration camps, but for the people who dared to think for themselves, not just follow the idea Hitler and his Party gave out. In the Boy in the Striped Pajamas Bruno and his sister Gretel had to move from their home in Berlin,Germany where Bruno had three of his best friends Karl,Martin,and Daniel.
Tolkien 15). This is talking about how Bilbo doesn’t like a lot of stuff and he doesn’t like things messy and dirty. I think about how Bilbo isn’t going to like the adventure and that he might make things hard for the dwarves and Gandalf. Also, I think about what the dwarves think about Bilbo and if they want him to come on the adventure because he
Children’s literature is defined as books that are enjoyed by children's such as picture books, poems and easy to read stories (Anderson, 2005). However, Clark (2004) argues that “children’s literature is always written for both children and adults; to be published it needs to please at least some adults.”(Clark, 2004, p. 96). The reason behind why children's literature need to get an endorsement from adults before being published is because children's literature can have a major influence on children's characters and values. Almerico (2014) stated that children are influenced by the characters portrayed in books that they read.

They saw kids “huddled together and being shouted at” (24), which they seemed to believe was some sort of rehearsal. The children were being mistreated the parents were being treated as slaves as they were being forced into perform manual labor for free, and bruno and her sister believed they were there on their own free will. That exact same scene in which Bruno see’s the camp for the very first time is portrayed just the same in the movie, the camp looked dead with no life
Although this book says it 's about the Holocaust it doesn’t accurately show the tragedies that happened to so many people. This book uses made up words to show how naive Bruno is and could be seen as very disrespectful to everyone who was affected by this. This book is very watered down and if any survivor read this they would be disappointed that people are reading this and thinking that this is what actually happened during the Holocaust. John Boynes’, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, is a great fable book, but I personally think it does not work as a teaching

Bruno is unaware that his father treats people badly, as a Nazi commandant. On the other side, Shmuel does not quite understand where his father could have gone, when he is reported missing. In such a world and such a time where people were being told what to think and what to do, who to hate and what relationships were acceptable, Bruno and Shmuel demonstrate how resistant children can be, as well as how innocence they may be. It also highlights how important kindness and compassion is in our
