Thanks for your comment! I think Maus is one of those books you pick up never want to put down. It's powerful, engaging, and--most importantly--very real. The format and fresh perspective is perfect for 8th graders who find traditional book formats tiresome(I was one of those students). It's actually two volumes and usually sold seperately, but there is a complete version with both volumes included somewhere out there. Good luck!
I really enjoyed your review of Red Scarf Girl. It makes me not only want to read the book, but to encourage students to do the same. There is something truly humanizing about reading someone's perspective from a culture completely alien to one's own, and helps to solidify the point that we are all the same species when similair loves, fears, and desires. I will definately read Red Scarf Girl now and will attempt to use it in a future curriculum of mine.
