The Sound of Music

For the past 2 days, K and I have been watching The Sound of Music. It's one of her favorite movies, but she proved that her powers of perception are increasing because she started asking questions about the subplot. You know, how the captain is being pressured to join the Nazi navy and just who are these Third Reich guys and why is everyone worried about Austria going away.

So how do you explain WWII to a 7-year-old without giving her nightmares?

I tried explaining the very basic facts, but I wasn't doing a very good job. I think tomorrow will involve a trip to the homeschool store or the library to find a kid-friendly resource on the war. Of course, there's not much kid-friendly about war. Especially that one.
