Great book.

This is great for discussion. My son who is 5 read it with me. He could sense right away the soldiers pain, fear, frustration. He had lots of questions. It was educational, inspiring, and the soldiers were good role models you will see why. The open ending had my child wondering and hoping...

This title has:

Educational value
Great messages
Great role models
