December is the time of the annual Ceremony at which each twelve-year-old receives a life assignment determined by the Elders. Jonas watches his friend Fiona named Caretaker of the Old and his cheerful pal Asher labeled the Assistant Director of Recreation. But Jonas has been chosen for something special. When his selection leads him to an unnamed man-the man called only the Giver-he begins to sense the dark secrets that underlie the fragile perfection of his world.
Ruth5 Stars Out Of 5October 20, 2009RuthAs one of many frequently challenged books, The Giver does contain many social themes that may be disturbing. That's the point. As with all things, parents should be guiding and teaching their children along the way. Many (if not all) of the themes presented in this book are things that have actually been witnessed recently and in the past. So many great conversations can be had with children. Why not listen to it together? Btw, as a librarian, I always recommend that parents read the books that their kids read.
Juliana1 Stars Out Of 5December 16, 2008JulianaI would suggest that parents proceed with caution. First check this out of the public library and listen to it carefully yourself. The issues covered in this work are chilling and very grown up. It could be useful if you use it for lessons regarding life and death.
