Veterans Day: Veterans Day for Little Kids: This mini book was created as a kid-friendly resource for you to read to your students for Veterans Day. It can be used along with your supplemental resources in your Veterans Day units. It is recommended for pre-k to Grade 1. I have tried to make the language as simple as possible, however, a few concepts need to be taught for a thorough understanding. The big idea of this celebration is to honor those brave military personnel who are alive today. This makes it different from Memorial Day which honors those who have passed.
