Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The Wall is a story by Eve Bunting. It is about a little boy and his dad who go to the wall, in Washington D.C., to look for the grandfather's name. The wall is a memorial for all soldiers who died in the Vietnam War. While they are looking, they see many other people looking too. They see two pair of gradnparents that were both crying. I really liked this book because the author shares a really good thought that soldiers should never be forgotten. This book also reminds me of my uncle Rick who was in a war. I think everyone should read this book if you have a relative or friend that fought in a war or if you want to remember other people or events from the past. This book is sad but, I think you'll enjoy reading it.
