Book Talk Thursday ~ Veterans Day

As Veterans Day approaches, I began to think about those who have fought so hard for our freedom.

For Book Talk Thursday this week, I am focusing on a book that remembers a time in history that can't be forgotten.

I love the book,  The Wall by Eve Bunting!  It really gives students of all ages a picture of the true meaning of The Vietnam Veterans' Memorial Wall in Washington DC.

In the book, a father and his son go to the wall to find the boy's grandfather's name.  The story is told from the boy's point of view as he describes seeing flags and flowers.  He places his school picture, even though he feels his "Grandpa won't know who I am." His father reassures him that he will.

Eve Bunting's tone of the book reminds the reader that it is truly a place of honor.

This year I created some fun letter writing papers to help students create nice looking letters to any veteran.  So, I am passing these on to use as freebies!  Just click here or on the pictures below to grab them!

Enjoy the freebies!  And don't forget to link up again this week!
