By the start of week three of the holidays my children have normally got a little bored and what to do something new.  So normally we pop to the library and try some new books that link to their topic next year.  I have chosen 4 great books with a 2nd World War theme that you might enjoy reading.

If you want to write a review for any of them please comment on the blog.
