In a recent piece, “How to Talk to Your Kids About Charlottesville,” New York Times children’s book editor Maria Russo featured Jennifer Elvgren’s The Whispering Town among “children’s books about people — including kids — who helped in the fight against Nazis and against racism here in the U.S.”
Based on a true story, The Whispering Town tells the story of a brave child named Anett in Nazi-occupied Denmark. Anett and her parents hide a Jewish boy, Carl, and his mother in their cellar until a fishing boat can take them across the water to safety in neutral Sweden.
