Since Remembrance Day is this coming weekend, we will be reading stories about war and tolerance. The Kindergarteners and Grade 1’s will be reading a wordless picture book called NO! by David McPhail. “Wordless, but speaking volumes, No! dramatizes conflict and its alternatives in a language that’s accessible to everyone, young or old.” (From the book jacket)
Grades 2 and up will be reading Six Men by David McKee. This is a powerful story about a group of men who become greedy and the consequences that occur when one group of people takes over another’s land. The story is accompanied by simplistic black and white drawings that really pack a punch!
