Pink and Say by Patricia Polacco

3.5 stars. Such a sad story. As you might expect from a Patricia Polacco book, this is uplifting and gives you hope in human nature and it is heartbreakingly sad and makes you despair too.

The American Civil war is something I know very little about, this gives you a taste of what it was like for young people having to fight. This is a good picture book for those wanting an introduction to this period of history from a personal point of view.

I do love these personal stories Patricia Polacco has from her family, a lot of amazing stories where passed on to Patricia and she is a great storyteller, one that takes you on an emotional roller coaster. One reviewer that seems to have done a lot of research into these characters seems to think this is fiction, who knows, but for me this was still a great story about the hideous waste of young people at war or the pain any war causes.

This is a very sad book and definitely aimed at older readers and not for a sensitive reader.

In what it describes as the first analysis of its kind, Teaching Tolerance conducted online surveys of 1, American high-school seniors and more than 1, social-studies teachers across the country. The group also reviewed 10 commonly used U.
