Lois Lowry connects it all in ‘Son’ – Books – MiamiHerald.com.

Lois Lowry’s The Giver and its sequels are tried and true favorites for kids.  As a matter of fact, she and her books have been a hot topic in my 7th grade classes as we discuss the hero’s journey in literature.

I can hardly wait to share this article from today’s paper about the 4th book in The Giver series!

Enjoy!

  1. My classes read THE GIVER too! We were lucky to get a class set of SON when it came out. The kids love Lowry’s writing and seem to have no trouble rooting for her compelling characters. I’ve even had a few pick up GATHERING BLUE and MESSENGER.

    • My stepdaughter gave me The Giver when she was in the eighth grade and practically watched me read it. She also talked about it in her application to the Honors College at Miami Dade College- it became part of her interview as well. There is so much to talk about with it. Having said all that, I think my favorite Lowery novel is Number the Stars. It was on my son’s summer reading list for 4th grade. Wow!
