The Lily Cupboard book. The Lily Cupboard is a historical fiction picture book written by Shulamith Oppenheim and illustrated by Ronald Himler. I really enjoyed this book because while I do believe math and science are very important subjects, I think history and learning about the past is just as important. World War II had a huge impact on the entire world and although it took place many years ago it is still so important to educate children about the past.

Miriam, a young Jewish girl, is forced to leave her parents and hide with strangers in the country during the German occupation of Holland.

Children need to know about the terrible events that occured in history, but they do not have to be horrified on the first introduction. The Lily Cupboard tells the story of a Jewish child who has been hidden with a Gentile family for her safety during WWII. She lives with the family but has to hide in a closet when German soldiers are near. The child accepts her situation and stays safe until the war ends. She understands the idea of protection by caring for a rabbit that hides with her. I read this story to my 7-year-old grandson and he was curious about the Germans. His own Great-Grandmother (my mother) survived the Holocaust and I felt he was ready to start learning about an event that affected his own family. I gave him more specific details. The story was a perfect and gentle way to start the conversation.
The story is fine, but it arrived in poor condition because of the packaging. It was folded.
This story provides a gentle fictional account of a child named Miriam forced to hide in the Dutch countryside during the Holocaust.

The book opens on May 10, 1940, when Holland was invaded by Germany, noting that for the next five years, Jewish citizens of Holland were sent to concentration camps where many died hideous deaths. But that is this story's only mention of what became of the vast majority of Europe's Jews during World War II.

The next page introduces Miriam and her parents, who explained to her that she must hide on a farm until the danger passed. Miriam packed one suitcase including her favorite books. In the countryside filled with tulips, daffodils and hyacinths, Miriam met the boy named Nello with whose family she would live for the next five years. Miriam's parents explained that she would be safe with them because they were not Jewish.

Once during her years with the family, Miriam was forced to hide in a cupboard, which had been pre-determined for those times when German soldiers might come. Outside the door, Nello's parents answered the harsh and mean soldiers in soft, gentle voices.

When the story ends, it's not clear whether Miriam would ever see her parents again. But that's the point of this tale, meant to introduce children to the Holocaust, without frightening them out of their wits.

The key idea here is that some Europeans were good and some Jewish children were safe.

--- Alyssa A. Lappen
This story is told rather ambiguously... the facts of the girl going to the country to stay with a family, and where she hides when the soldiers come, is simply told. Why she has to go to the country and why she has to hide, are more complex issues. This story does not attempt to explain all the details and reasons why. Because of this, it is appropriate in the opening of dialogue about WWII and the Holocaust with children of all ages.
I could read this story to my 4 year old, or I could have my 9 year old read it. It's not the complete story - but not all children can fully understand or are ready for the complete story.
I felt that the information was handled with dignity, and it wasn't told in a maudlin manner at all. As a teacher and mother, I can recommend this book to any child who is ready to learn a little about this tragic time in our history, even the most sensitive students.
28- page picture book. A little Jewish girl is taken to thecountry and cared for by a gentile family. The father fashions ahiding place for her behind a lily-painted cupboard . She must hid here when the soldiers come to search for her. A fictional account of the brave Dutch people who risked their lives to save the Jews in Holland. A moving story with beautiful illustrations. Excellent for young children.
The Lily Cupboard is about a jewish girl is gets left behind by her parents to a trustful family. Her name is Miriam, her parents leave her to a non-jewish family in order to be safe, becuase the German soldiers have invaded Holland to remove all Jews. Miriami's told that when soldiers are to come, the family will warn her by a whistle and she will hide in a cupboard.
I thought the book was well told. It felt terrible to see what this war did to families and how tough it was for childern who went through this tragic war. This book shows a kind hearted family, that let a Jewish girl into their home and who protected her from harm. I give this book 4 stars out of 5.
This is one of my favorites. The book is about a young Jewish girl living in Holland. She is sent to live with a Christian family so she is safe from the German soldiers who invaded the country. The son of the family buys the girl a rabbit which she becomes dearly attached to and will let no harm come to it; just as her parents would let no harm come to her. The story is sad yet heart warming. The girl inspires hope and love in such despairing times.
