World War II has just ended when thirteen-year-old Mikhail finds a dying man and his German shepherd, Zasha, in the woods. It’s dangerous-some say traitorous-to own a German dog after Germany attacked Russia, so Mikhail must keep Zasha a secret to keep her alive. This FREE resource consists of chapter-by-chapter comprehension questions based on the novel “Saving Zasha” by Randi Barrow.

This novel focuses on Mikhail’s inspiring journey to save his best friend, the last German shepherd in Russia, forcing him to face some of life’s hardest lessons about war, hate, forgiveness, hope, love, and man’s best friend.
