The Treasure Box

We rated this book:


This book is very beautiful, but it is also very sad. This is why the book is so sad: because when the enemy bombed the village that Peter lived in, it destroyed everything. Only one book was saved – one that Peter’s father loved and saved. The enemy demanded they leave their houses, so Peter and his father had to go. But before they left, they saved the book. They put it in an iron box. The dad said this was so important because it was about “us, and our people.” Even after Peter’s father died, Peter kept the book.

This book is a good book to read because it feels really true. It might have really happened, although it would be sad if it really did. There is no magic in it, but it almost feels magical because of how Peter and his father treasure the book. My favorite part is when Peter, who was grown up, told a little girl that he had a really nice book, the treasured book, that was a greater treasure than rubies and silver and gold.
