This is simply one of the best children's books ever written. I would love to see it on "must read" lists for schools. (I'm a children's librarian, and one of the parents in my school also expressed that wish). (SARAH WHITCHER'S STORY by Elizabeth Yates also needs to be on lists of great books). I originally read this as NORTH TO FREEDOM...same wonderful story. It was made into a movie (I AM DAVID), which was good, but not as good as this wonderful book about a boy who escapes a prison camp and finds his way north to his mother in Denmark. There are several wonderful parts. When David wakes up the morning after his escape, he sees color all around him. You can just feel what it could have been like after the drabness of a life inside a prison camp. I wish that the movie had capitalized on that glorious scene. A fellow prisoner dies in David's place when David is almost caught with a bar of soap. Later on, as a fugitive, a dog also takes a bullet for him. Both of these deaths are reminiscent of Christ's self-sacrificial death for all who believe. I love it when stories give us pictures like this. (What Francis Schaeffer called pre-evangelism). Very moving, and with a happy ending. (Movie pluses--Joan Plowright and Jim Caviezel are in the cast. Joan Plowright has such warmth. I loved her in Jane Eyre as Mrs. Fairfax).

This story has so many great literary elements: mystery, danger, adventure, moral themes (justice/human rights issues), emotional highs and lows, not to mention the educational value of understanding the effects of communism and the plight of refugees...but for me the most beautiful element was the process by which David learned to trust God.

I saw the movie first, and was greatly moved, which led me to read the book. There is some difference between the two--part of the role of Jim Caviezel's character in the movie is accomplished in the book by another unlikely character towards the end. Also in the movie the identity of the person helping David escape is not revealed till the end, whereas in the book it's established from the beginning, but the mystery there (in the book) is "why" this person helped him. Besides the relatively few story changes from book to movie, the book places you "inside" David's head, whereas in the movie you are an outside observer of his circumstances.

Being "inside" David's head allows you to share in more of his thoughts and feelings. The theme of understanding God's character and love for David was very powerfully accomplished in the book. When David loses his compass, he begins to feel hopeless and realizes his need for "outside" help, for which he turns to God. This is such an interesting and beautiful process because he has very limited knowledge of God. All he knows is a small bit of information given to him by Johannes, his late friend and mentor from the camp. Johannes had once told David that a long time ago there was another boy named David who wrote songs about his God and that his God led to green pastures and beside still waters. David made the decision to worship "that God" based on his need for "green pastures and still waters", and throughout the story he addresses God as such in his prayers to him ("God of green pastures and still waters").

He begins relating to God on a somewhat "legalistic" basis--sort of an "if you do this favor for me, then I'll do this favor for you" type of system. There are times when he needs God's help, but refuses to call on Him for help because he doesn't feel he's yet "earned" it. There are actually some incredible moments within that though--the extent that David is willing to go to to make his life worthy of God's involvement and to please God. But by the end of the book, through various circumstances (and one particularly powerful, very symbolic circumstance towards the end of the story), God sovereignly reveals His grace to David--not based on what David can earn, but on God's love for him. The story also affirms to David his value and worth to God--that he (David) is worth sacrificing for.

And without giving too much away...the story has a very happy, satisfying ending!

I picked three Holocaust books as summer reading for my sixth grade students this year, and "I Am David" was my favorite. In the beginning, the reader wonders if David will escape the concentration camp. As the story unfolds we wonder what will happen to David on his trip North.

her book makes you think "what if"

I Am David shows the horror of a country without freedom and what living in a country that holds no love for freedom for all men, shows what is done to men and children "they" find subversive. David is a special child given the strength to trek through difficulities and the unknown looking for what he knows in his heart to be something "lost" and so much better. Even though this is a book aimed for the primary younger crowd, this grandma couldn't put the book down until young David experienced the bad and good from those that journeyed with him in his search.

A wonderful book! A moving story for adults or young adults. I bought this book because my 90 year-old aunt used to teach it in grade school. She still has adults come up to her and ask her how to get a copy of the book they loved so much as children.

the author Anne Holm did an excellent job understanding the mind and emotions of a child who spent first 12 years of his life in a nazi concentration camp. the intelligent mind. the cautious mind the deep virtues developed in inhumane conditons was astounding to understand and capture these qualities. excellent novel.
I read this book as a child and could still remember many of the images and emotions it evoked in me. I was delighted upon rereading it that, as an adult, I still rated it as an excellent book. I have started reading it to my class of 9-11 year olds and they love the depth of emotions and the drama of this stunning novel.
