    One thought on “Where Poppies Grow: A World War I Companion”

    1. Photographs, newspaper clipping, cartoons and other period images complement concise text describing the various experiences of World War I, from the soldiers who fought on the front lines, all back to the home front.Although the encompassing nature and harsh reality of total war are described, care is taken to keep the text appropriate to students. Overviews of soldier training, soldier transport, trench warfare, battles at sea, emerging air power, nursing, propaganda & patriotism, encourag [...]

    2. A picture book outlining various aspects of World War I, particularly focusing on things that affected soldiers and civilians regularly during this time.

    3. We read this slowly, 2 to 3 pages a day. It's set up in a scrapbook type format so it didn't hold our attention like a story would have. The information is sound, the pictures add and it covers a good variety of material.

    4. Notes:nothing too graphic'scrapbook' style photos and captionslots of good info and real first-hand historyuse for age 10+
