Holidays are days that we set aside to celebrate something special. Some holidays celebrate people, some remind us to be grateful, and some are days for reflection. Veterans Day is a day Americans spend in gratitude for the veterans who have served their country. Whether they served in the Marines, the Coast Guard, the Air Force, the Navy or the Army all veterans are honored. On Veteran's Day the president visits the grave of an unknown soldier and honors all veterans by placing a wreath on the grave. This Spanish version of Veterans Day teaches children how and why certain holidays are celebrated. Readers will love seeing kids their age celebrating as they do, enjoying a special meal or watching a parade, and will learn that though we may celebrate different holidays we all celebrate in much the same way. This book is part of the "Holidays and Festivals" series which increases the reader's awareness of the world around them by introducing them to a variety of celebrations from all cultures.
