With its vivid imagery, Semper Cool thrusts readers into a grunt's-eye view of the blood, guts, tears and laughter of war, as told by a Marine who returned home a man and a patriot. Be prepared to laugh and cry and ultimately thank God for the men and women willing to risk their lives for the freedoms that so many Americans enjoy.
In the league of great military memoirs, which includes such works as Barry Fixler's Semper Cool: One Marine's Fond Memories of Vietnam, this account of the Battle of Gettysburg by then Lieutenant Frank A. Haskell is one of the most moving, and honest accounts of battle ever written.
This is a Dolch sight word book with a story that your child will actually enjoy. It may be gross, but kids love this stuff, and that's the point. Unlike most sight word books and decodable word books, Billy Bad sight word books have stories that will capture the attention of early readers and make them laugh. When kids enjoy the stories they read they fall in love with reading. I hope your child enjoys these silly (and gross) sight word books as much as my son does.
