What are we fighting for?

SHOP:9781447248613

What Are We Fighting For? explores the concept of war in an accessible way for younger readers. Fascinating and moving in equal measure, there are poems about incredibly brave dogs, cats and pigeons; the Christmas truce of the First World War when soldiers played football in No Man's Land; poems about rationing and what it was like to be an evacuee, poems about modern warfare and the reality of war today; plus lots of amazing true historical facts. This cross-curricular poetry book is a brilliant way to get young readers thinking about both the historical and philosophical aspects of war.

Brian Moses has been labelled 'one of Britain's favourite children's poets' by the National Poetry Archive and has worked as a professional poet since 1988.

Soft cover, illustrated, 102 pages.
