I’m New Here is a simple text about three kids trying to adapt to their new school and homes.
In French and English, Where in the World, is a more sophisticated text for older students.
A story of la young soldier who goes on a peacekeeping mission to Afghanistan. Beautiful paintings illustrate a country in turmoil from a foreign soldier’s point of view.
A few books I recommend for Remembrance Day…
Focus on Peace:
Such a great book. Paulie Patrami achieves world peace one cupcake at a time. How will you achieve world peace?
Each two page spread begins with the statement: Somewhere today and then tells how peace is happening around the world. Photographs include a variety of cultures and ethnic backgrounds.
Beautiful photographs of people all over the world, very simple text.
And a couple books about war:
The true story of a young woman who saves a group of children, hides them, feeds them, and cares for them in a concentration camp. This
True story of a stuffed bear sent in a care package to a young soldier in World War 1. The bear returns from the war, but the soldier doesn’t.
This is one of my most favourite books. A wordless picture book that begins with a peaceful frog sitting with his flower on a rock, that somehow evolves into an all out war. Brilliant for discussions.
