  1. Soldier’s Song would be my first pick…lately there seems to be a lot of revisionist history in children’s books, so this one seems the safest…not promoting some agenda.

  2. Soldier song sounds like it will be interesting and filled with stories and facts from soldiers. And a good pick since veterans day is near.

  3. Even though these are above my kindergarten reading level, I would love to have John, Paul, George and Ben in our library for the other students to enjoy.

  4. Light in the Darkness sounds interesting to me. I have not read any of them but this caould have a number of possibilities for the meaning.

  5. John, Paul, George,and Ben would very interesting to me. Early American history interest me, so this looks like a good read.
