I’ve been keeping this blog all through the World War One centenary commemorations. I had no idea there were so many children’s books about war and there are many more I could review, both contemporary and from the past. These books are wise, thoughtful, exciting, moving, often very sad; their heroes and heroines are brave, scared, courageous, resourceful and inspiring.
I have loved reading them. But Armistice Day 2018 seems like a good time to draw this project to a close. It is wonderful to read about the many joyful projects being planned to mark the centenary of the end of World War One.
And this is my own project, due out in March 2019.
