Poppy is to Remember
A book to read each Remembrance Day. In moving words, and with illustrations both dramatic and tender, A Poppy Is to Remember calls to mind the rich symbolism of the poppy we wear so proudly on Remembrance Day… lest we forget.
With soothing words and illustrations aimed specifically at younger readers, children will learn how the bright red poppy became the symbol for honouring those who fought for freedom. The text is simple and is combined with stunning paintings by award winning illustrator Ron Lightburn. The familiar poem, In Flanders Fields, is included, along with information about the symbolism and history of the poppy and Remembrance Day – all geared towards helping parents and teachers explain the significance of past and present wars and Canada’s peacekeeping missions.
This is a book parents will read to their children year after year.
