This is a collection of two of my reading/study guides, on The Book Thief and The Boy in Striped Pajamas. I decided to put them together since I feel they complement one another perfectly. Both are center around young characters in the midst of World War 2, and both represent a very appropriate and necessary introduction to that time. Within both reading guides, there are writing prompts for each day of reading, chapter comprehension questions and graphic organizers. Throughout the guides, I've also included illustrations, a post-reading reflection and non-fiction articles to help support students' understanding of the time and events of the book.
