How did the bright red poppy that we all wear in November become Canada's symbol of honouring those who fought for our freedom on Remembrance Day? Moving text coupled with stunning illustrations by Governor General's Award-winning artist Ron Lightburn explain the symbolism behind the poppy. A bonus for teachers is the five-page spread all about the poem, ""In Flanders Fields,"" Canada's wartime and peacekeeping endeavours, and the adoption of the poppy as our Remembrance Day emblem.
