When Spring Comes to the DMZ by Uk-Bae Lee

There is a two and one-half mile zone between North and South Korea.  People aren't allowed there but the wildlife flourish....

Plough Publishing House and Edelweiss let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published March 1st.

While the animals enjoy the area, military training goes on next to the fence holding people back.  The soldiers march, the animals play and separated family members gaze at the other side.  Building walls doesn't enhance relationships between people or countries.

The illustrations are pastel and create a feeling of peace.  This is also a way to share history with your child.  Much of the history in this world is sad but the people still have hope.
