The Children’s Front
Marty Parkes, author
The Children’s Front is a tale that is both sad and full of joy. It describes the direst of circumstances, of death and destitution. At the same time, the story contrasts these circumstances with uplifting daily instances of generosity, hope, and love that combined to nurture France’s next generation. It is a tale of compassion and courage carried forth in a deprived and perilous environment. Ultimately, it stands as a testament to heroism and honor.
