Hiroshima No Pika is the most disturbing children's picture book I have ever encountered. The information is very important, but it should be used with discretion in the classroom.

Think descriptions and images of dead and dying people laying upon a beach after the atomic bomb blast at Hiroshima. People, animals, cities, eaten alive by flames. A father slowly dying of radiation poisoning, his hair falling out and his skin covered in angry welts.

Hiroshima No Pika shows us the cost of war. Both people and animals are counted among the innocent dead.
