Your PJ Our Way Books for February

Posted February 01, 2019  | Written by PJ Our Way Team

Take a look at PJ Our Way’s choices for February!  This month, your child can read about a girl who’s getting used to a crowded home during WWII or discover how a 9-year-old stowaway survives on the streets of New York City.  A comic book retelling of the story of Purim and a graphic novel following the adventures of Rabbi Harvey are both sure to delight kids looking for a humorous read.

Then Lady Thornton moves in, too, with her daughter, Maggie.  With the arrival of Ruth, a German Jewish refugee, the cottage becomes even more crowded and uncomfortable.  Luckily, Lady Thornton’s got beautiful horses for everyone to ride.  Everyone except Ruth.  Because she’s German.

Just an FYI - in The War I Finally Won, the character of Sarah is a lesbian in a romantic relationship. This information should be included in the content section of the book details, but it wasn't. Be prepared to discuss this aspect of the book with your child.
