Description of Resource

This children's book is about a group of young boys who like to play war using sticks as guns and pinecones for grenades. When a new boy named Sameer hesitates to play with the other boys, he explains that he's been through a real war. The book aims to teach children what war can be like for families, and that war is not a game. Ages 8 and up.
