This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
While this book appears to be geared towards a younger reader, it isn't watered down to the point where it was uninteresting for an adult. The stories and images were heart wrenching and well-assembled. I would recommend this as a good book for anyone who is interested in the kindertransport, but who doesn't want to delve into a more academic history book.

This is a good overview of the Kindertransport itself. Included are the events leading up to it and how the children were actually transported plus some about their lives during and after the war. I particularly liked that Hodge included a list of other books for both children and adults and wish that my local library had some of them.

A good introduction for both children and adults to this subject with lots of great illustrations. Recommended.

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
"...The men and women who organized and ran the Kindertransport were unbelievably brave and tenacious, and thanks to their efforts, thousands of children were relocated to safety before the war really began...Hodge peppers the book with anecdotes about the Kindertransport experience from eight different people who were child refugees through this program...

...The brevity of the book along with the overall tone leads me to believe that Rescuing the Children is really meant for roughly middle-grade children (well, that and the fact that Hodge is a children's author), but the content is not watered-down to the point where the message would be lost to older readers. As an adult, I know I got a lot out of reading this, and although it's not the kind of book I'd use as a source on an academic paper, I would certainly recommend it as an excellent jumping-off point for anyone interested in learning about this topic in particular or about the Holocaust and World War II in general."
