-- School Library Journal

"Where Poppies Grow is a haunting, moving scrapbook of the Great War from a Canadian point of view. . . With photographs, memorabilia and anecdotes, the Canadian author brings readers face to face with people from all walks of life who risked everything for their country."
-- North Bay Nugget

"Where Poppies Grow provides an excellent survey of how the lives of young people and adults were affected by World War I. Containing photos of postcards and other WWI artifacts, this short book includes an amazing amount of information about the lives of soldiers, civilians, and children during WWI. The sacrifices made by everyday people are explained well, and the tragedies of war are explained in an age-appropriate manner. There is enough information here to help a young person write a report about the war and to inspire them to wish to read more." (4 out of 5 Stars)
