Thread: Did anyone ever make a kid's book about the JFK assassination?

  1. Default Did anyone ever make a kid's book about the JFK assassination?

    I am speaking about a book that normal, responsible parents could and would read to their 6-8 year old kids, if they ask for example: "Who was John F. Kennedy?" or "Why did JFK die?" or "Who shot at the president?" or anything in this range.
    Or what do you think, most normal, responsible parents would answer to such a question?
    What would you yourself answer to such a question?

    Thanks for responding.

    Not that I am aware of Carsten but it would be a great idea for one. I hope some one does it and I hope they are not a lone nut believer.

    There actually was such a book - a child’s picture book - that described JFK’s death as a murder, and which dealt with the subject in a compassionate manner, but I don’t remember the title or author. I remember browsing through some pages from it online though. Possibly folks at the JFK Education Forum might recall the title, or there might be a thread there about it.

    Can you try to find that, it would be of much interest to me. Likewise any childrens books about other deep events.
    Thank You, Anthony, Magda.
