Twenty school children hide ten Jewish children from the Nazis occupying France during World War II.

Publishers Description
Looking for a story about courage to read to your child? One that instills character by virtue of its essence, and not by sermonizing? I always am, and this old favorite (read to me when I was nine) is luckily still in print.

During the Nazi occupation of France, twenty ordinary French kids in a boarding school agree to hide ten Jewish children Then German soldiers arrive. Will the children be able to withstand the interrogation and harassment?

Twenty and Ten is based on a true story -- one of many similar incidents that took place all over Europe during World War II. It is a book that has much to say to children of any age. -- A reader

More About Claire Huchet Bishop & William Pene Du Bois

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Claire Huchet Bishop (ca. 1899 1993) was a librarian, storyteller, critic, and writer. She grew up in Le Havre, France, and attended the Sorbonne for a time before founding France s first library for children, L Heure Joyeuse. Her children s books grew out of the popular stories she told both at L Heure Joyeuse and at the New York Public Library, where she worked after marrying the pianist Frank Bishop and settling in the United States. Among the seventeen works of fiction she wrote for children are "The Five Chinese Brothers "(1938), "Twenty and Ten" (1952), and the Newbery Honor books "Pancakes-Paris" (1947) and "All Alone "(1953). Bishop also wrote several biographies for children and nonfiction works for adults, and served as children s book editor at "Commonweal" during the 1930s. Active during the Second World War in the cause of European Jews, she devoted herself after the war to fostering better understanding between Jews and Christians, writing "How Catholics Look at Jews" (1974) and encouraging the Vatican s recognition of the State of Israel.
Robert McCloskey (1914 2003) was born in Ohio and moved east to study art in Boston and New York. He was awarded a prestigious Rome Prize, but World War II made it impossible for him to go to Rome. Renowned as a draftsman, McCloskey provided illustrations for a variety of authors and also wrote and illustrated eight books of his own, including "Blueberries for Sal" (1948), "One Morning in Maine" (1952), and the Caldecott Award winning stories "Make Way for Ducklings" (1941) and "Time of Wonde"r (1958). McCloskey s last book, "Burt Dow: Deep-Water Man," came out in 1963. In 2003, he died on the Maine island where he had lived with his family since the 1940s."

a fifth grader  May 5, 2009
this book could have been better but my teacher love it and no one else in my class does.
A very good  Jul 22, 2007
book for children to read. Not all stories that come from the holocaust are horror tales. This is a good one for the children to read for a unit study on the holocaust. My children liked it.

The story of children in an orphanage coming to the aid of jewish refugees.
Awesome book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  May 15, 2007
This was an awesome book! I really enjoyed it because of its quality writing and how the whole story was interesting from the start to the end. I suggest this book for 5th or 6th graders. Twenty and Ten talks about 20 French kids hiding in a refuge up in the mountains while the occupation of France by the Nazis. One day ten Jews were sent to the refuge where the twenty kids were. The kids found a safe place to hide when the Nazis came. Will the French kids betray the Jews or will the French kids die just to save the Jews?
10 year old review  Feb 28, 2007
This book is about a young girl named Mary and her friend. It takes place in Northern France during the time the Nazis were occupying France. The kids don't care about the war until a group of Jewish children running away from the Nazis come to their house with two Nazis soldier hot on their trail. The Jewish children have to hide. Will the Nazis find them? Will Mary and her friends betray them for a bribe?
I give this book one star. I thought that the plot was a little boring and childish. I recommend this book for people who like a easy read.
5 grader's review  Feb 8, 2007
Mary and her friends live northern France up on a hill. This is a bad time because the Nazis are invading France. Mary and her twenty friends help ten Jewish kids escape from the Nazis. Will Mary and her friends betray the Jewish kids over a bribe?
I give this book three stars because it was full of suspense but the beginning and the end were pretty boring.
I think Twenty and Ten is Realistic  Dec 1, 2006
Twenty adn Ten is a very detailed story with many interesting facts. I belive many of these facts happened in the time period of World War II. I think it is detailed because the author takes alot of time to explain the main events. I have read several facts that have made me contemplate that the novel is realistic. The fist example of the author's factual style is when Sister Gabriel was sent to prison. She was sent to jail because the Nazis thought she was hiding Jewish children, which she was. I belive that people would have done this during World War II. Secondly, the townspeople hid Jews in a cave from the Nazis. It seem to me honest people would have protected jews during this historical period. Lastly the author writes about the children's ration card. I know that children during the Holocaust had ration cards.
