Young Oskar seeks refuge in New York City after the Night of Broken Glass in Europe. He experiences comfort through unexpected blessings during his search for his aunt’s home. Author’s Note. Glossary. Map
  NCSS | Jul 23, 2021 |
From Kirkus Reviews, www.kirkusreviews.com, "New Yorkers know that just about anything can be found in New York City: a waterfall in the middle of the block, a tiny museum in an elevator, lox-flavored ice cream. New York is full of miracles, and this book is nothing but miracles. Put on a ship by his parents after the rise of the Nazis in Europe, Oskar arrives in New York on the seventh day of Hanukkah (it is also Christmas Eve) and must walk 100 blocks uptown from Battery Park to the home of an aunt he doesn’t know. As he walks up Broadway, a woman hands him bread, and a young boy hands him mittens. Oskar whistles a duet, on the spur of the moment, with a man whom a poster reveals to be Count Basie. (Eleanor Roosevelt also makes a cameo.) These things happen in New York. When he said goodbye, Oskar’s father told him: “even in bad times, people can be good. You have to look for the blessings.” The blessings here are so bountiful that readers may not be surprised even when a newsstand vendor gives Oskar a copy of the very first Superman comic. Siegel’s paneled illustrations make anything seem possible. The people don’t look quite real, and they don’t look like cartoons. They look like chalk drawings on a sidewalk, just starting to fade. They glow.

People used to say that the streets of America were paved with gold, and this book almost makes you believe it. (historical note, map) (Picture book. 4-8)"

Lovely story and pictures! Great map of Manhattan in NYC circa 1938 at the end of the book that shows Oskar’s journey and the events/people he encounters along the way. There is a touching and informative author’s note at the end too. Great story for Hanukkah, and as a gentle introduction to the Holocaust, and even for Christmas too, for historical fiction NYC, and a wonderful story about perseverance and kindnesses and finding the good there is to be found. I followed along with Oskar as he goes down Broadway to his destination and found the story entrancing. It was a perfect book for me to read at this time of year, and brought back some memories of NYC too. Also, we need a story like this right now. Highly recommended as a story about a refugee/immigrant! ( )

This story begins with an ominous picture and the caption, the Night of Broken Glass. Little Oskar is sent off by his parents to escape the Holocaust and to America to be with his Aunt Esther. He has never met her before and only has a picture to go by. The story is well written as he receives small blessings along his journey, which are coincidentally big moments in our history, and eventually finds his Aunt Esther on the street as he is looking for his house. His father had given advice as he left to look for the blessings, and he did indeed have those along the way. ( )

. The Simons message is that even in bad times people can be good. It is a heartfelt story full of hope, a holiday blessing that good still exists in every person and neighborhood. This picture book tells the story of a young boy, sent to Manhattan to find his aunt, following Kristallnacht. Oscar arrives in New York on Christmas Eve, 1938, which also happens to be the seventh night of Hanukkah. As he walks down Broadway, he finds many reasons and people to give him hope, to believe in the generosity of the human spirit. Walking through the snow covered streets he sees many holiday sights and encounters its various residents. He is offered small acts of kindness, welcoming him to the city and helping him on his way. An author’s note explains that many of the events told here are historically accurate, including Eleanor Roosevelt’s visit to NYC at the time. A wonderful holiday classic to read and discuss with your children.
