Review: AMERICA’S WHITE TABLE by Margot Theis Raven, Illustrated by Mike Benny

She Is Too Fond of Books recently read and reviewed America’s White Table by Margot Theis Raven and illustrated by Mike Benn for the Vietnam War Reading Challenge.  Here’s an excerpt:

“The inner story of John and Mike as POWs in Vietnam is brief and poignant.  Imprisonment, injuries and death play a brief, but vital role in the flashback.  It is not graphic, nor does it dwell on this aspect of wars; it is necessary, though, to introduce the concept of sacrifices made in the name of freedom.  I felt it appropriate for the ages of my children who read the book with me (5, 7, and 11), and was able to address whatever questions they had in my usual manner (that is, with as little age-appropriate information as needed to satisfy their curiosity about a sensitive subject … similar to the way I’ve handled the birds and the bees!).”
