How did the bright red poppy that we all wear in November become Canada's symbol of honouring those who fought for our freedom on Remembrance Day?

Moving text coupled with stunning illustrations by Governor General's Award-winning artist Ron Lightburn explain the symbolism behind the poppy.

A bonus for teachers is the five-page spread all about the poem, "In Flanders Fields," Canada's wartime and peacekeeping endeavours, and the adoption of the poppy as our Remembrance Day emblem.

An excellent book with paintings depicting a little of war but in a gentle way. The book explains what Remembrance Day is about and why people wear poppies in November in a simple format with only one or two sentences per page. However, at the back of the book, the author describes in more detail the wars that Canada participated in and the events that surrounded them.
