Children's Books Honor Veterans

By November 10, 2013

Follow me on:

Cover Art of the Children's Picture Book Veterans Day honors all of the men and women in the U.S. military and their families for their sacrifices on behalf of the United States of America. As a reminder of all we have to be thankful for, why not share Chris Gall's beautifully illustrated edition of America the Beautiful with your children. If you are looking for a book about remembering those who died in war, I recommend The Wall by Eve Bunting. This poignant children's picture book is about a visit to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial by a father and his young son.

It's also important to remember all of those men and women recovering from service-related injuries. If your family or a family you know has a parent with a service-related traumatic injury, you may find Our Daddy Is Invincible, a picture book by Shannon Maxwell, a helpful resource. The book is based on her own family's experiences when her husband, a Marine, sustained a traumatic brain injury, when their daughter and son were 10 and 7.
