One summer day Luke and his friends decide to play their favorite game of war, but Sameer, who is new to the neighborhood, hesitates to join in. When Sameer tells them that he has been in a real war, they don’t believe him. As he tells what happened to his family, the others start to see their game in a new light.

Playing War, by Kathy Beckwith, is a book about understanding what war can be like for families, and that it’s not a game. It’s also a sensitive story about the power of friendship and how children can learn from one another.
