I have recently read the book The Boy On the Wooden Box By Leon Lyson. The book is 231 pages long. I was recommended this book by a librarian because i was looking for something inspirational and The boy on the wooden box was just that. The book is a bout a young Jewish boy named Leon. He was in Krakow when the Nazis attacked Poland. once the Nazis had made into Krakow they relocated all the Jews to the Krakow Ghetto. This book talks about survival and how one man can change many lives for the better. That mans name was Oskar Schindler. He was the boos of a company that used Jews to make items for the Nazis. This man helped the Leon and his family over the many grueling years of their lives. He gave them food shelter all better than a concentration camp. He helped them survive. This man put his family’s name on a list as the world knows Schindler’s List. One of the most amazing quotes that was in this book was “a hero is an ordinary human being who does “the best of things in the worst of times.” – Leon Lyson. This book shows how the possible became the possible on “Schindler’s List”. What surprised me most was Leon’s courage and courtesy during all of his hard times. He tried to show the best in people and in anything. He was always thankful for what was in front of him than what he wanted. This Book was an amazing book it shows how a single persons courage can get them anywhere. This book inspires me a lot to help others and be thoughtful. I would rate this book 9/10.

Thanks for the recommendation Robbie, I am looking forward to reading this book.
This kind of reminds me of a book* from kindergarten with the whole person in a box, but I’ve also been reading non fiction books to do with the Hitler stuff and when he was in..power? Anyways I think this will be a book I’ll be reading very soon. *Henry’s Freedom Box
