Editorial Reviews

Resource Links
"Trottier opens the door to discussion about human relations and the effect war has on individual lives... In short it is a gentle story of the goodness of people in terrible times... This book would support social studies curriculum focusing on Canadian history, especially World War I, as well as the study of regions of Canada."
