In just over a month, on Veterans Day, the United States will honor those who’ve served our country as a member of our military. This day has its origins in Armistice Day on 11-11-1918 at 11 a.m., the day the fighting of The Great War (World War I) ceased.
We don’t talk a lot about World War I in the U.S. I suppose it’s because our military was only involved for less than two years. However, Europe was decimated, and the world is still dealing with the repercussions of that war.
In honor of the centennial of Veterans Day and World War I (1914-1918), I’m giving away a group of recently published kids’ books about the war.
To enter the giveaway, please comment below. I will conduct a random drawing the morning of Tues., Oct. 13. Entries will be limited to non-relatives and to those with U.S. postal addresses.
How did The Great War affect your family? What are some books about the war you’d recommend?
