“In a world where everything moves at such a fast place, picture books remind us to slow down and savor time reading with someone we love. To tuck into a favorite reading place or share a lap and be transported and transformed. And in doing so, picture books create memories we will have for eternity.” – Carmen Oliver

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, a temporary stop of warfare was declared between the Allied nations and Germany during World War I. Armistice Day began the following year, and became a legal federal holiday in 1938. After World War II and the Korean War, Armistice Day became Veterans Day and now honors American veterans of all wars.
We have some great books about Veterans Day available for check out!
