Staff Pick: A Time To Be Brave

Staff Pick: A Time To Be Brave

A Time To Be Brave

David and his family live in Denmark during the Nazi occupation, until September 1943 when their neighbors help smuggle them to Sweden to escape Hitler’s orders to send the Danish Jews to concentration camps. Includes honey cake recipe, World War II timeline, and “the story behind the story.”

“History’s lessons are often dark. How do we introduce children to them sensitively? Books like A Time to Be Brave come to the rescue. Young David is a baker’s son in Copenhagen in 1943. As blackout drapes replace his curtains and chicory replaces coffee, David learns that the goose-stepping soldiers occupying his town are to be feared. David witnesses bravery and strength in everyone from King Christian X to his sister, his teacher and ultimately, himself.”
