Feeling very intimidated

Soldier Bear | Bibi Dumon Tak

“Peter rocked the cub in his arms as though he'd been raising baby bears all his life, and Stanislav declared, 'Okay, we're keeping the bear.“

This story would be great for children to read once the topic of the World War's comes up in the classroom. I liked how the author included real pictures from World War II of Voytek and the soldiers that took him in at the end of the book. That is a great way for children to relate the book to real life events.

Mehso-so

This Batchelder Award Winning book is based on a true World War II story. A group of Polish men came across a young boy with this bear on their way to fight in the war. They couldn't leave the bear alone with the boy, so they decided to take it with them. This bear, named Voytek, became one of the 120 Polish soldiers that fought in World War II. He gave joy to all of the soliders, and gave them the encouragement to go out and fight. Good story!

This is the week that I finish this amazing book. Told by a Kurdish poet that is being held on an island off the coast of Australia. How the world deals with war refugees is the question of this moment in history. #NFNov #nonfictionnovember

I‘ve not read or seen this, about Mendez‘s first-person account of a dangerous but successful operation, aided by Hollywood and the Canadian government, to help rescue six US diplomats from Iran in 1979.

One of our favorite recipes from one of our oldest cookbooks. I can‘t remember when we got the book, but I know this Greek shrimp with tons of melted feta is one of the first recipes we made out of it. Still one of the best.

Bookzombie That looks delicious! 1w
Lynnsoprano @Bookzombie Truthfully, as good as it looks, it tastes 10 times better. Just about my favorite dish ever. 1w
