An excellent book with paintings depicting a little of war but in a gentle way. The book explains what Remembrance Day is about and why people wear poppies in November in a simple format with only one or two sentences per page. However, at the back of the book, the author describes in more detail the wars that Canada participated in and the events that surrounded them.
