  1. In the Author s Note at the end of this book, Marcia Thornton Jones mentions that Vietnam was the war of her youth In Woodford Brave , she is able to draw from those experiences and craft a convincing, coming of age tale set in World War II America.For a basic plot summary, this story centers on Cory Woodford, a young boy whose father is off fighting the Germans During the day, Cory chums around with his baseball obsessed pals and suspects the neighbor, Mr Ziegler, of being a Nazi spy At night, [...]


  2. Two stories that came to mind while reading this 1 I remember when I first learned about WWII and the Nazis in the fifth grade I was horrified I was even horrified to discover that I have German ancestry in my family on my mom s side It made me so ashamed What if some of my relatives, however distant, had contributed to the atrocities But then as I grew up, I realized something I am not responsible for the sins of my relatives, both near and distant Their choices do not define me.2 When I was a [...]


  3. Cory is determined to show everyone in Harmony that he is brave like his grandfather who died in WWI and his father who is fighting in WWII But Sawyer is consistently questioning his bravery This is an interesting story set during WWII that captures the attitude of many Americans during that time pride in America, determination to participate in the war effort, and the unquestioned hate of all things German, regardless of whether that hate is founded in any truth Cory is no different He is convi [...]

  5. As an educational colleague of Marcia s, I was fortunate to read her very first manuscript, Vampires Don t Wear Polka Dots straight out of the dot matrix printer Although her themes have matured, Marcia still has a knack for characterization because she obviously knows kids I thought her characters in Woodford Brave were true to life Her characters developed as only kids could This was a very poignant story and important for our time as certain politicians are seeking to polarize our country and [...]


  6. First of all, Kevin Whipple s illustrations add so much to this book He s created a comic book within the story lines that will entertain readers I love the 1940s children and their view as they deal with the reality of war and how it affects them, their town, and their families As I read the story, I felt I had a better understanding of what my parents went through as WW2 hit home This would be a good book to help kids understand the history, the value of friendship, and family A word of cautio [...]


  7. Cory Woodford wants to be Woodford brave, like his father, off fighting in WWII, and his grandfather, a war hero But, while his letters to his father are filled with comics about the Mighty Space Warrior and his son, Cory feels less than heroic His best friend is deserting him to hang out with someone else, he is teased about spending time with the new girl in the neighborhood, and a Nazi spy is hiding out down the street When Cory learns about his own family s past, he realizes not everything i [...]


  8. Cory is 11 years old and enjoying summer but also worrying about his father fighting in Europe The family legacy of always being brave is hard Meanwhile the fear and rumors of Nazi conspiracies cause the neighborhood kids to spy on a reclusive neighbor The difference between good and evil is not easily understood and Cory learns a valuable lesson.


  9. Historical fiction during WWII that highlights the stereotypes, the fear, the comic heroes, and most of all the hate that abounded during that time period.
