10 Children’s and YA First World War Books
Did you know that 100 years ago today was the start of the First World War? World War One began on 28th July 1914 and lasted until 11th November 1918. It’s one of history’s deadliest conflicts, but there’s few children’s and young adult books set during it (you’ll find much more about WWII). The centenary has meant that a whole host of children’s books surrounding WWI were published this year, so here’s a selection that I’ve come across, some read, some just on my wishlist. Head over to my other Pretty Books to find out more about these books.

I Am That Girl is “a global movement inspiring girls to LOVE, EXPRESS, and BE who they are through education, content, and community.” They’ve teamed up with celebs like Emmanuelle Chriqui, Aimee Teergarden and Amanda de Cadanet to create a community for girls to empower each other and be themselves, which is something we’re obviously ALL about here at Gurl. Their latest campaign called “WORDS” features a new word every week along with a girl telling a story about someone in their life who embodies that word. This video from the beautiful Avery explores the #ElectricGirl in her life!

I think this is necessary to post. I see a lot of people “saving” bunnies.
"*Bunnies are one of the most frequently “kidnapped” mammal species.
*Mothers dig a very shallow nest in the ground that is easily uncovered when mowing or raking the yard. If you find a rabbit nest-leave it alone!!
*Mother rabbits only return to the nest two or three times a day, usually before dawn and right after dusk.
*To determine if they are orphaned, either place a string across the nest in a tic-tac-toe shape or circle the nest with flour. Check the nest the next day. If the string or flour is disturbed, the mother has returned. If not, take the bunnies to a rehabilitator.
* A bunny that is bright eyed and 4-5 inches long is fully independent and does NOT need to be rescued!
*If you find a bunny that does need to be rescued, put it in a dark, quiet location. Bunnies are a prey species and while they may look calm, they are actually very, very scared!”
Never knew this, keeping this for reference
As a student of Veterinary Medicine I can completely confirm this! Do NOT take them out of their nest unless you’re 100% sure that the mother did not come back for them after at least one day!
