Plumfield and Paideia

War Horse
Reviewed by Diane Pendergraft
Two books have made me cry in front of my class while reading aloud. One was Little Britches, the other was War Horse by Michael Morpurgo. Itís not that I only cry about horses. It is the suffering of innocent creatures that gets me. In the case of War Horse, it is also the senselessness of war, WWI in particular. The clash of the technology of two different centuries makes for particularly gruesome situations. My intent is not to make sure you never read this book. It is to try to explain some of its power. Iíve heard different comments about the intensity of the story. I also hope to give you some details to help you discern whether this might be a good fit for you or your family.
