World War II for Kids

Since its publication in 2002, this book has earned a reputation as one of the top children’s books ever written about World War II.

Unlike almost any other book on that era ever written for kids, World War II for Kids takes a global perspective on the war, and features narratives from people who lived in the USA, Great Britain, Germany, Austria, Hungary, and Japan. Though it features a chapter on the American home front, you'll also learn what life was like in other countries during the war. Also included are harrowing true tales from Holocaust survivors. The book regularly appears in the Top 5 among Amazon.com bestsellers in the area of children’s historical war/military books.

World War II for Kids is carried by bookstores and museum shops across the nation, including the Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor and FDR’s home in Hyde Park.
