To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This book was written for families with POWs and/or MIAs, but also works for anyone with a loved one serving overseas. It's a tradition celebrated on Veteran's Day. I purchased this book to use for a Children's Story for the Church of the Brethren. As our church believes in Negotiation over Aggression, I needed to modify the symbols, leaving out the lemon, for instance, to make it fit for all the loved ones we've lost over the years. (And I used it as a reference, rather than read it to a group of wiggly kids.) It's a very moving book.
This is a book that should be read to every young child so that they can learn of the sacrifices of our Servicemen. I also have it read to gatherings of both senior citizens and military gatherings on Memorial and Veterans Day. In accordance with full disclosure, I knew the author and her husband. Every time I hear or read it , it brings tears to my eyes. To our Servicemen where ever and when ever they served, THANk YOU!!!!!
Wonderfully amazing book! I used this for our whole school in preparation for Veteran's Day - however, I always had to find teachers who were able to read the book aloud. I could not get through it with dry eyes. I have now passed this on to my next generation of teachers to carry on a very important tradition.
