Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A sensitive and moving picture book, and a great discussion book as well." School Library Journal, Starred
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A boy travels to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial with his father to seek out his grandfather's name. The well-matched text and illustrations are soft but stirring. Ages 4-8. (Aug.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-Eve Bunting's The Wall (Clarion, 1990) has been faithfully transferred to the audio format in this poignant retelling of a small boy's search for his grandfather's name on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. In a subdued voice, the male narrator reads the story, accompanied by a few background sounds and some guitar and flute music reminiscent of the folk music that was popular during the era of the Vietnam War. There is a brief introduction and a follow-up instructing listeners to rewind the tape, or to turn it over if they want to listen without the page turning chime. The audio quality is excellent, and the narrator's voice captures the quiet grief that the boy and his father feel over their loss. This is a picture book that begs to be read by a sensitive adult, and this version satisfies that need. For school and public library collections.-Linda R.
