Books to Commemorate Memorial Day

Here is a list of some of our favorite books to read for Memorial Day. These books focus on the Memorial Day holiday celebrated in the United States and remembering the sacrifice of those who served in the United States military. Some books describe the origins and history of the holiday, some share the ceremonies and rituals practiced by many families, and others are stories that share the sorrow, loss, and sacrifice that encompass this holiday. Many of these picture books are stories that can be shared with the entire family to bring greater meaning and understanding to this holiday as we remember and honor the sacrifices of those made on our behalf.
