A nostalgic day out exploring classic war stories for children
This weekend my cousin and his family are coming to visit. He has two little angels of 8 and 10 years old. Well, they are little angels until boredom/hunger sets in – but then again, the same could be said about me.
So in an effort to keep them entertained, and also avoid traipsing through the Science Museum in Kensington yet again, I came across this fascinating sounding exhibition at the Imperial War Museum entitled: Once Upon A Wartime: Classic War Stories for Children. (Hear more about the exhibition in the video below.)
Luckily, the boys are both book lovers and unsurprisingly are in their element staging elaborate toy battle scenes and pretending to blow things up. So a day of classic children’s war stories sounds right up their street (and mine too).
