Number the Stars Book Diary by Ava

War

I think that war is about fighting for their countries.

In World War II, people in those countries probably felt scared about the gunshots and bombs overhead. They also probably smelled a lot of smoke from guns and bombs. The probably saw a lot of firings, too.

Community

When I think of neighbors I think of my friends and good things because my friends are really helpful.

If there was a war going on in my neighborhood was affected, I would realistically respond by running away with them and hide with them underground or let them hide in my basement.

Number the stars

World War II because on The Amazing Race it was a lot about the war. The conflict would most likely be about them running out of food, water or shelter.

Literary Analysis

Mama says, "Be one of many." I think this means to be like other people because war is going on, to not act like a crazy person. Also to not run around or race and to be your normal self.

"Well,' Annemarie said slowly, "now I think that all of Denmark must be bodyguard for the Jews, as well.'" (page 25)

To act like Ellen is Annemarie's sister if a solder is wondering if Ellen is a Jew.

Predictions

(1) Annemarie felt more ordinary because she never going to be called upon for courage. So she feels more different as well. (2) It’s different because of her feeling more in touch with Ellen and is more thankful to have a different kind of friend. (3) It’s like Ellen made the imprint on her hand because The Star of David necklace is Ellen’s and Ellen said that she has never taken it off. So Ellen’s necklace is a very special thing to both of them.

We just read Annemarie and Ellen saying goodbye to each other because they were going to Uncle Henrik’s boat and when Mama was coming back she tripped on a loose root. When Mr. Rosen tripped on the stairs and dropped the packet and Mama told Annemarie to deliver it to Uncle Henrik with some bread and cheese but was stopped by four soldiers and two huge dogs. Therefore, I predict that the soldiers will ask Annemarie why is she coming through the woods alone and Annemarie will act like Kirsti.

Conflict

Man vs Self

The scene when Annemarie was thinking about that if she didn't do what she did and what would have happened. Annemarie learned that she didn't need to worry about that because her best friend was safe in Sweden. This is an example of this kind of conflict because Annemarie is trying to think of what would have happened. if she didn't save her best friend.

Man vs Society

The scene when Annemarie was surrounded by people that she had no idea who they were and in her house so she stayed quiet and calm. Annemarie soon found out there was no Great-aunt Birte and the people all were Jewish. I know this is this conflict because Annemarie was confused why so many people came and why they are Jewish.

Man vs Nature

The scene when Annemarie had to go through the woods and had to pretend that she was delivering lunch to her Uncle Henrik and had the packet underneath a napkin in her basket. Annemarie learned that there are soldiers everywhere and she is stopped by two and they have two dogs. I know this is this conflict because Annemarie had to act like Kirsti when the soldiers approached her.

Man vs Man

The scene when Kirsti was arguing to her Uncle Henrik that she wanted to have milking lessons with Annemarie. Kirsti's mom said that Kirsti had to be her mom's 'nurse'. I know this is this conflict because Kirsti was arguing to her Uncle Henrik.

theme

Bravery is when you don't care what's up ahead.

The theme means to me is that if there is something ahead that you're worried about you don't care about it. When Annemarie had to run through the woods and was stopped by the solders and their dogs. In the beginning when Annemarie and Ellen were stopped by the two solders and Annemarie talked to them. In the end when Annemarie was running through the woods and was stopped by the solders.

Vocabulary words

Ration

"It was a long time since they had dared to use the strictly rationed electricity

Lanky & Stocky

"She was a stocky 10-year-old, unlike lanky Annemarie."(page 1)

Based on the sentence, stocky sounds like the word stiff, and lanky sounds like the word loose. These words are describing characters's looks.

Lanky means tall and skinny. Stocky means bulky of thickset.

Suffix: -y, relating to or filled with; Other words: messy, cheesy, lucky.
