The Big Lie: A True Story - Isabella Leitner, Judy Pedersen

This book is a good introduction of the Holocaust to young readers. The author details the atrocities that took place in a matter of fact and simple way that teaches the truth about Nazi Germany without being too scary for the age group that it is intended for. Very worthwhile read for 3-5 graders interested in history.
