Children's Literature - Lisa Colozza Cocca
This nonfiction title explains why and how Americans celebrate Veterans Day. Part of the "Celebrating Holidays" series, the book traces the history of Veterans Day back to the conception of Armistice Day. It explains how and why the holiday expanded from a time to honor World War I vets to a day to honor all American veterans. The book includes information about the symbols associated with the holiday, including flags, poppies, and monuments. It shows how Americans celebrate the day on a national, local, and individual level. The book is divided into five short chapters, which can be read independently of each other. Sidebars, photographs, and captions provide additional information. The book includes a table of contents and an index. Back matter includes a craft page that encourages students to write a thank you note to veterans. A glossary and suggestions for further research are also included. The web sites suggested are more suited for teachers and parents than children, but offer many suggestions for celebrating the holiday at school and at home. The book would be a welcome addition to lessons focusing on Veterans Day. Reviewer: Lisa Colozza Cocca

This is a great book to read even if your parents, grandparents, or any family members are in the army or the navy. Personally my uncle and grandfather (great) served in the army and til this day every Veteran's Day I call them and say Thanks You. And you should too after you read this book.
