20 Kids’ Books You Didn’t Realize Were Messed Up Until Later

Number the Stars

A beautiful but intense book, Number the Stars tells the story of Annemarie, a young girl living in 1930s Copenhagen, and her friend Ellen, who is Jewish. Annemarie saves Ellen’s life by pretending that she’s her sister. The book is important for kids to read, but the subject matter is pretty messed up.
