My husband asked for this book and after reading it gave it to his father who travels to DC each year with junior high students. This is a beautiful book and very informative. Read full review

This is a very touching historical fiction story. A boy and his father make a visit to "The Wall" and pay respects to his grandfather who's name is written on there. The antagonist in this case would be the people that the little boy's grandfather, along with other people who went to grieve at the wall, had to fight. The story is told from the little boy's point of view. It's a book full of pictures and a good amount of vocabulary that I'd recommend to be read to or by children between 3-7 years old. I would definitely recommend this book!
