The giver, chapters 7-8 audiobook

My fourth-grade son, who is nine years old, took The Giver home and was asked to read chapter 2 on his own. Although I would never recommend that any book be questioned in a school or library, I am worried about his age and whether or not he is ready for such a difficult book. He’s a good reader, but I’m not sure I want to hold him responsible for his comprehension of this allegory and some of its “darker” themes, such as infanticide. How can you handle this as a book-loving parent and a high school English teacher who teaches “banned” books? 2 DadTeacher 1:04 a.m., October 12, 2007
Even though my boys read well and can handle more adult themes, I’ve never seen the need to rush them into darker, more difficult books; keep them kids as long as possible!
As a book-loving mom, I’m happy to share books with my children, and as a parent/teacher, I’m all for reading the entire banned book list… but not every child (or even most children) can learn something good from reading a book that is too mature.

Book summary of “the giver” by lois lowry

Jonas’ universe is flawless. All is in its place. There is no fighting, and there is no fear of pain. There aren’t any options. Every member of the group is assigned a task. The annual Ceremony in December is when each twelve-year-old is given a life assignment decided by the Elders. Jonas keeps an eye on his happy pal Asher, who is the Assistant Director of Recreation, and his friend Fiona, who is the Caretaker of the Elderly. Jonas, on the other hand, has been selected for something extraordinary. When his path leads him to an unnamed man known only as the Giver, he starts to sense the dark secrets that lie underneath his world’s fragile perfection.

Book review: the giver, by lois lowry middle school read

Jonas lives in a post-apocalyptic world of conformity, where no one makes their own decisions and everyone follows the laws. The elders give you a job when you reach the age of twelve. Jonas, on the other hand, is left out of the ceremony and later discovers he has a special role as the Receiver of Memory. As he learns about art, music, love, and hate, this unique job helps Jonas to finally feel the emotion that is sorely missing in his life. His experience will forever change the way he sees his community and lead to a daring adventure that defies anything he was taught as a child.
