I'm a mom of 3 kids, and I love to read and watch movies, and I'm picky about what my kids read and watch.

BOOK: Left to Tell (by Immaculee Ilibagiza)

Left to Tell:  Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust
by Immaculee Ilibagiza

This is not just a beautifully written memoir and a fascinating true story of survival (which it is), but an inspiring account of a life filled with sorrow and hope, despair and faith, hate and forgiveness, love and loss, and redemption.  Well worth reading.

There are some fairly graphics descriptions of the reality of the Rwandan holocaust (though I'm sure they don't even come close to depicting what it was really like), but they are necessary.
