Hi Everyone! Next Sunday is Remembrance Day in Canada.
I always read the following books. They’re perfectly suited for young children. The pictures are beautiful and the content very gentle.
A Poppy Is to Remember is a favourite. It leads to lots of discussions.
What Does Peace Feel Like? by Vladimir Radunsky explores the 5 senses of peace. It’s quite an unusual, but effective, way of looking at peace.
Can You Say Peace? by Karen Katz is a great book to read after What Does Peace Feel Like? Each page features a child from a different part of the world. The text follows this pattern: “Kenji lives in Japan. Kenji says heiwa (hey-way)” etc.
You can grab the above booklet from Primary Success. It’s a freebie and all you have to do is join their mailing list and ask for it.
