Eleven worthy reads that help share the meaning of Memorial Day

The editors of the BN Kids blog tagged eleven books that help share the meaning of Memorial Day, including:
The Wall, by Eve Bunting and Ronald Himler

In another beautifully drawn picture book, this gentle story follows a young boy and his father as they search for his grandfather’s name on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. Using soft illustrations and a calm narrative voice, Bunting and Himler have created a loving book about a difficult topic. Sometimes the best way to tell a story is the simple way, as this book shows. During Memorial Day, or before any trip to visit The Wall in Washington DC, this book should be on everyone’s must read list. (Ages 4-7)
