This book is excellent for a read-aloud or small group book study. The vocabulary and symbolism are relatively simple, making the book accessible for upper elementary audiences. At the same time, it introduces complex ideas about justice, bravery, and history.
The best discussion questions, of course, are generated by and contemplated by readers. These questions are designed to avoid major spoilers about the book, and to provide a starting point for teachers, parents, and student reading groups.
