The primary goal when I got this book was to have my 11 year old read it which he did avidly That in itself is cause for praise But as the author encourages families can and should read this together and I too found Tutti's Promise briskly paced and informative I was astounded that so many historical documents survived the Lichtenstern family's arduous journey It's really a nice extra dimension for a fundamentally warm and moving story of humanityAnother noteworthy point is that for such a deeply grim topic as the Holocaust the scare factor is very well calibrated The connection with young audiences is stronger as a result

Pering But then Germany invades the Netherlands And in the pre dawn hours of May 10 1940 the Lichtensterns suddenly learn that they have not moved far enough This is the true story of what the Lichtensterns endured under the Nazis Told by Tutti's daughter Heidi and filled with historical documents and photos it vividly recreates how one family conuered fear and heartbreak to survive Theirs is a tale of both unimaginable devastation and lucky surprises raids sabotage helpful friends and strangers and a very special gift One family One remarkable story And in the end a promise kept Tutti's Promise is based on the true story of what happened to. This was a excellent book It was a very simple book but I felt transported into the moment of each chapter I read this in an inner tube while sitting in a lake and still managed to put myself in the moment I have never read a biographical tale of the Holocaust that included repatriation I have also never read anything from a survivors point of view It was Tutti's story and it is riveting The thought that one human can do these atrocious things to another regardless of color creed or nationality is overwhelming to me The thought that we are still acting like this terrifies me Tutti's Promise gives just enough reality without overwhelming the reader but it does not trivialize the experience Worth the read
