A Bear in War


We read A Bear in War and coloured poppies for our Remembrance Day wreath today. A Bear in War is one of my favourite picture books for talking about Remembrance Day. It is a true story and showcases Canadian history.
After we read the book we visited the website for the Canadian War Museum to see the real Teddy Bear!!!

Cheers,

  1. Hi Terri!
    We read Bear in War too! Thanks for the museum link. I told the kids I'd find it and share it with them. I will be sharing that experience in my Writing Sundays post. Pop by. I'd love to know what you think. Our 2nd grade perspective was probably a little different. :)
