for The Lady with the Books by Kathy Stinson and Marie LaFrance
A fictionalized retelling of how books from around the world helped children in Germany recuperate after WWII. Anneliese and Peter will never be the same after the war that took their father's life. One day, while wandering the ruined streets of Munich, the children follow a line of people entering a building, thinking there may be free food inside. Instead, they are delighted to discover a great hall filled with children's books - more books than Anneliese can count. Here, they meet the lady with the books, who will have a larger impact on the children's lives than they could have ever imagined. The place between despair and hope can often be found between the covers of a book.
