As part of an on-going initiative, Charity Hill reviews children's books. Here, she reviews The Giver by Lois Lowry, the Newbery Winner in 1994. Charity traces the plot from its utopian presentation through Jonas' discovery of his community's dystopianism, to Jonas' dramatic escape. Charity proposes that this story can instigate marvelous questions with our children where we wonder "What is justice?" "What good must I do?" "What is the best way to organize a just society?" and "How far must I go in order to resist evil?"
P.S. Charity flags a couple of inappropriate/cautionary moments in the story.
Purchase The Giver by Lois Lowry.
