Author Eve Bunting has a gift for writing about serious subjects in a way that makes them accessible to young children, and she has done just that in her picture book The Wall. This children's picture book is about a father and his young son's visit to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
Last year I made a booklet for Veteran's Day (11/11/11) we also played with the fun date a bit... I have revised the booklet so that we are focusing on the date of Veteran's Day (11/11 without the year).
I'm in the middle of creating a simple art project with the American Flag... hopefully, tomorrow I can pull it all together.
