This is a wonderful picture book for kids of all ages about remembrance day. It is the last book that I will review for November’s mini-book review challenge.
This book is just as informative. However, what I especially liked about it was the how kids are involved in the celebrations. The previous books that I read focused on veterans more than kids. So, they were informative books and not quite as engaging as this one.
Also, the book underscored some facts that I didn’t know such as that some people attach special notes or poems to their Remembrance Day wreaths. Further, kids can show veterans that they care by going to the parades and shaking some of the veteran’s hands.
I had no idea that some people plant tulips or a tree in memory of people in their communities who died during their military service.
There is so much to learn about Remembrance Day! I had a great time learning all about this important day.
