This is one of my all time favorite books. “The Giver” is a book geared for older children. When I first read it, I just loved knowing that kids in the world reading stuff like this. I couldn’t convince Aubree to read it, so we read it together and it instantly became one of her favorites. We have both now read it 6 or more times.
I spent a good deal of my life running from various emotions and fears. I think to some degree we teach each other to avoid certain thoughts and feelings. Whether its death, religion, fears, dreams, or whatever….there are places we just don’t let our mind go…and that’s too bad. This is a great book that encourages us to think openly, question, and stand up for what we believe in.
