"We'll Never Forget" is a wonderful book written to honour those who have served Canada both in war and in peacekeeping missions. It is suitable for all ages, as there are two stories running side by side; one is a lovely picture book illustrated beautifully by Asher Sadeh, and the other is a series of mini biographies of a variety of men and women who have served Canada in the military. The artwork is enchanting and the photographs accompanying the biographies work to bring the stories alive. The fact that the book comes with its own CD only adds to the multidimensional qualities of this very special book. For our Facebook friends; "you will "like" this book!!"

On November 11, we went to Etobicoke Civic Centre to be part of the Remembrance Day service there. We saw many older men in uniform, some in wheelchairs, proudly wearing medals on their chest. The ceremony was long in spots and there were some long speeches, but we saw the wreaths being dedicated and then being laid under the Cenotaph. The girls were extremely well behaved and learned something about the importance of honouring those who fought for us.
