The Boy on the Wooden Box

By Leon Leyson
Level 6

I have not read this true autobiography, but my 14-year-old son really liked it and did not find anything objectionable. It also has high reviews from others. Booklist says, “This powerful memoir of one of the youngest boys on Schindler’s list deserves to be shared. Leon Leyson grew up in Poland as the youngest of five children. As WWII breaks out, Lesson’s ingenuity and bravery, combined with the kindness of strangers and a bit of serendipity, save his life, time and again.”
