Escaping the Nazis on the Kindertransport is a good book. It is historical non-fiction about the Kindertransport, a train that saved a lot of people during the years leading up to World War 2. It is short but well written and has many pictures. The book tells the stories of many people who survived on the Kindertransport and then tells about what happened to them after the war. One of them wrote a poem about the Kindertransport. There are also some quotes from the survivors. I would suggest this book for ages 8 to 13 as it is dark but short. 4 stars out of 5.

I received a free electronic copy of this work from Netgalley, Emma Carlson Berne, and Capstone, Capstone Press in exchange for an honest review. Thank you, for sharing your work with me. This is an excellent book for tweenies and teens - possibly even younger children. It explains the kindertransport and the reasons behind it and the night of breaking glass without graphic details. The photos of the children and their parents that were packed in their suitcases before they were placed on the train are exquisite. The fact that they never got to see their parents again is heartbreaking.
