I was happy to be able to share the concept of the remembrance table in my review of Margot Theis’ important picture book, America’s White Table. Her prose and Mike Benny’s illustrations are a winning combination to deliver this story.
Sleeping Bear Press offered copies of the book to three readers of She is Too Fond of Books. The winners, drawn randomly, are:
- #4 – Angela D. – I would love to share this book with my 4th grade class. I think it is important teach about our men and women in the military and how important they are to our freedom. I will use this book to also teach symbolism and use it in a creative writing lesson.
- #7 – Heather S – This book would be for my Mother, she would adore it, and no I hadn’t heard about it before here!
- #15 – gwendolyn b. – This book would be primarily for my niece and nephew, but also for myself! I had never heard of the White Table and would like to learn more. It sounds like a wonderfully gentle way for children to become aware of the sacrifices and achievements of our veterans. Thank you!
Congratulations to all! Please email your US/Canada mailing address to me and I’ll send it along to the publisher.
