The Veterans’ Clubhouse by Kristen Zajac

Veterans

The Veterans’ Clubhouse by Kristen Zajac is a touching story that shows young people they can make a difference. Patrick, Hailey and their parents befriend a homeless veteran in need. To offer help to Charlie and others like him, they organize a benefit concert to raise funds to build a resource center at their church.

What an inspiring and heartwarming story! Two kids see a need in their community and they work with their family and other adults around town to make a difference. The reader is also witness to Patrick and Hailey using their special talents (drumming and drawing) to help their cause. This book shows how one seed planted can blossom into a field of flowers that touches many.

The vibrant artwork of Jennifer Thomas Houdeshell brings Zajac’s story to life. Considering Charlie is a Vietnam veteran, the colors and designs found inside are inspired by that time period. I also like how doing so weaved Hailey’s drawings into the illustrations.

My father and one of my brothers served in the U.S. Armed Forces, so this is a book whose subject is close to my heart. I applaud Zajac’s continued commitment to sharing the importance of our veterans and veterans’ issues with young people.
