So moving, raw, emotional! The story of a young boy growing up during a very bad time, World War II, in Warsaw. He was orphaned at such a young age, he doesn't even know his own name, nor remember his parents. This story isn't the first I've read about the Holocaust. I have read a few non-fiction stories in college, watched a handful of documentaries, a couple of movies too. But Mr. Spinelli nailed this one! You feel as if you are there, witnessing the events first hand. You feel for these characters with everything in your being. You feel their happiness, their sorrow, their fear, their hatred, their confusion. It will be forever added to my favorites list. I can't describe this book adequately and do it justice. You just have to read it!

This is a historical fiction set in [mainly] Warsaw Poland, that uses many facts and events of the time period. I highly recommend this book. With the assistance of a gorwn-up, younger readers can appreciate and learn from the subject matter and hopefully come to sympathize with anyone who is unjustly oppressed or mistreated.
The main character is a young, destitute, orphan boy who has no certainty of his identity (name, ethnicity, etc) and his daily life of surviving in the city. The story begins just before the Nazi invasion/occupation of warsaw. Poland. Shortly after, he witnesses the subjugation of the Jews of the city and their forced segregation to the ghettos, then their eventual removal by freight train (to send them to the concentration or death camps).
The character's child innocence and lack of common knowledge (and current events) brings a third-person point of view to the story, as the reader is taken along with him as he gains knowledge and identity.

Milkweed is the best book I've ever read that deals with the Nazis, Hitler, the concentration camps, the fear and the reality of torture and death to the Jews during this reign of terror. It is written so any older child can understand it, and yet it captured my attention from beginning to end. I couldn't put it down. My 12 year old, who IS NOT a history buff and doesn't even like to read, never has trouble remembering the Jackboots, the children stealing food to keep from starving, and the trains pulling away while loved ones held their arms out to each other for the last time. MILKWEED is a totally accurate portrayal of the horrors the Jewish people lived and died in under Hitler's rule, yet it is presented in a fictional way that children can understand. Don't miss this one. Thanks Amazon for putting Milkweed out there for all to read.

This book takes place during the times of the Holocaust. Having read Jerry Spinelli novels in the past, it didn't surprise me that the main character was a young, somewhat innocent boy and that the novel is in first person. Overall I wish I would of read this book when I was younger. Spinelli serves as a great young adult writer, and this book is best suited for someone in middle school when they are just learning about the holocaust. This novel highlights a unique perspective with a light theme of how the holocaust impacted everybody in Germany; without the gruesome details. Beyond that, this still can be a great quick pleasure read for all ages. However, out what i've read from Jerry Spinelli, I recommend Maniac Magee over Milkweed without a doubt.

The character development and characteristics in this novel was on point. Each character remained consistent and the details of each person's identity gave life to the story. The main character, Misha has a unique perspective from being raised on the street with little to nothing to call his own. Once the Nazis (or Jackboots as Misha called them) gained power, Misha was able to use his skills to help others close to him and himself. Compared to other Holocaust novels, this novel has less action and a lot less war battles than the average story. However, Milkweed still remains captivating and another Young Adult hit from Jerry Spinelli.

This book captivated me. My son loved it and wanted me to read it. I promised him one night that I would if he would read a chapter of a book I liked. Needless to say, I couldn’t put this down and devoured the book this weekend. Very well written...

A friend recommended this book and I'm just so glad that I took her advice. It is the story of a young Polish boy during WWII in Warsaw who has been separated from his parents, gypsies, traveling in the countryside. The author tells the story of the Warsaw ghetto through his eyes in a remarkable way.
I loved the storytelling and found it a truly unique and powerful book.

This is a very good book to use with younger students, but the ending isn't strong. I suspect the warm sentimentality is supposed to smooth over the ending.

My son's 6th grade class read this book in school and they were enthralled by it. After completing the book my son was emphatic that my husband and I read it too. We're so glad we did! The book was outstanding and kept us engaged from start to finish. Milkweed is a must read that set the stage for a very insightful dialog about the atrocities of the Holocaust. Sensational book! Don't pass it by!
