The Korean War Remembered

On this day in 1950, North Korean military forces launched an invasion of South Korea. The subsequent conflict lasted three years during which over 33,000 American soldiers died. A number of memorials have been created to commemorate the efforts of American and Allied armed forces in the Korean conflict. Among the most notable is the Korean War Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Books about veterans and Veterans Day offer a way for young readers to learn about and recognize the contributions veterans have made for our country. Enslow Publishers' What Is Veterans Day? provides a thoughtful, quite accessible introduction to this significant topic. Author Elaine Landau's 24-page work deliver a nifty mix of well-written text and skillfully chosen, full-color photographs that tell the story of this important day.

The book, included in the "I Like Holidays!" series, is available directly from Enslow in a library-bound edition for $15.95; that price represents a 25% school/library discount from Enslow's list price for this title. The book is also available in paperback for $6.95. What Is Veterans Day? can also be obtained from your preferred vendor, Barnes and Noble, and Amazon.
