3 Paws Up

On the cover of Rolling Thunder is the picture of a young boy and his grandfather riding a motorcycle. The images created by Greg Ruth in Rolling Thunder are a work of art capturing the emotion, scenery, and thrill of a motorcycle ride. Unfortunately, the text doesn’t seem to live up to the illustrations.

Kate Messner’s story of the Rolling Thunder Ride for Freedom which takes place in Washington D.C. each memorial day to honor fallen soldiers is simplistic and the rhymes occasionally feel forced.

“Pentagon and city lights.
Finally our camping sites.
Grandpa’s friends with arms of steel
Greet us and prepare a meal.”

This book is a great launching point for discussing fallen soldiers and war with children. It shows how as a country we honor our soldiers with monuments, holidays, and gatherings of friends and strangers.
