Peeling Vegetables Tip {Book Inspired}

I learn plenty from books.  Usually fictional books teach me about how people think or history or even another world that I never imagined on my own.  This time it was different.

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas is a fictional account about a boy named Bruno.  He, along with his family, moves far from their home in Berlin to a lonely place without friends.  When Bruno explores along the tall fence, he meets a boy who was born on the same day as him.  With the fence between them, they cannot play.

I appreciated how John Boyne wrote of World War II through the innocent and unknowing eyes of a child.  Though Bruno is just nine years old, this is not a children's book.  I found it in the young adult section of my library, which I think is appropriate.  This is a book I definitely recommend.  It's short and worth the read.

(Like usual, I'm a bit late to the game.  This was made into a movie in 2008.  I haven't seen it, and quite honestly, I'm not sure I want to.  If anyone has an opinion, please share.)

During one of the brief scenes in the kitchen, I noticed the vegetables were peeled on newspaper.  The next day I tried it for myself when preparing sweet potato fries.  I appreciate the newspaper containing the mess and will do it again.
Aren't books amazing!?  What have you learned recently from a fiction book?
