This is a wonderful, sweet book. It is the story of a little boy who goes to a Memorial Day Parade with his mom. She tells him that there is a "big surprise." As each event in the parade unfolds, from the marching bands to the free candy, he asks if that was the surprise. Each time, his mother tells him that the surprise is even more special. At the end of the parade, people stand and begin to clap. The little boys wonders why, then spys his beloved grandfather, a veteran, being pushed in his wheelchair at the front of the group. The sense of expectation builds with each page and the illustrations are very bright and cheerful. My children loved this book. What a wonderful way to introduce children to the Memorial Day holiday and the people who are at its heart!

It's tough to teach young kids about the reason we celebrate Memorial Day. The subject is one they may have trouble grasping amid barbeque parties and parades. This book sums it up perfectly and makes a wonderful lesson for young children. The various fun things Marco gets to experience lead up to the real surprise when he finds his abuelo among the honored veterans in the parade. Children will be able to identify with Marco as he watches the parade, and the excitement building to the surprise will keep them interested throughout the story.

This was purchased to share the meaning of Memorial Day with children in our Sunday School classes. The classes listened well and truly understood. A book young children enjoy and will learn about a special American holiday.

Good book, but the title is wrong. It should be called Veteran's Day Surprise because not once in the entire book does it mention what memorial day actually is. Memorial Day is when we remember the service members who gave their life. Veteran's Day is when we celebrate those still living who have served or are currently serving. The author didn't make it know at all that this was the purpose of memorial day and the surprise at the end is living veterans walking in the parade. I checked this book out from the library to read to my kids on Memorial Day to help educate them about the day and was very disappointed.
