A Song for Cambodia

A Song For Cambodia by Michelle Lord is an excellent picture book for my elementary students about the events that occurred in Cambodia. I am sure my students know nothing of the Khmer Rouge and this book is written at a level they will understand. They will also be able to connect with Arn who is a young boy living through a horrible war. Because there are illustrations and not photographs my students will ask many times (even after I tell them) whether this is fiction or non-fiction. They are always amazed by the non-fiction stories and this will be no exception.
