Landau offers an engaging, contemporary look at the Veterans Day holiday. Red, white, and blue headings highlight the brief text accompanying each colorful double-paged spread.

This introduction to Veterans Day is written with simple vocabulary that enables it to be used by beginning readers.

The I Like Holidays! series, of which this one is a part, feature large photographs, suggested websites, and a "What You Can Do" activity that gives readers a chance to create something and make a veteran feel valued.

Interesting. The book begins with the glossary. The facts are simple, but clear. The real life photos are a beneficial addition to show emotion in the text. Includes age-appropriate activity at the end.
