For Veteran's Day

Looking for a great book to share with your young readers as we prepare to observe Veteran's Day on November 11th?

THE POPPY LADY, Moina Belle Michael and Her Tribute to Veterans by Barbara Elizabeth Walsh, Paintings by Layne Johnston, Calkins Creek, 2012.

Reviewed here on December 1, 2012, The Poppy Lady is still as timely and fresh as it was then. A new group of  children are now reading and comprehending what it means to be connected to ancestors who served our country before they were born.

Here is the link to my review. Go to a library or independent book store and hold the book in your hands. The Poppy Lady will bring generations together.

    1. It's a beautiful book, Jan. You'd love the art work as well as the heroine.
