I'm not going to forget to share our history and the gratitude I feel for our veterans with the young people in my life. Here are a few things that I thought were important to share.
I've been researching mentor texts to share with my class this Veterans Day and came across this one.
If you're looking for something to read to your classroom or your children, this is a serious, touching and beautifully told story about the Vietnam Memorial written by Eve Bunting. It's called "The Wall" and tells the story of a young boy that visits the wall with his father. They're looking for his grandfather's name on the shiny black memorial. The illustrations are done by Ronald Himler. It was published in 2002 and I can't believe I haven't read it before!
