Anzac Ted is the powerful, poignant story of a little boy's teddy bear that was passed down to him from his grandfather. Battered, torn, missing an eye and an ear, he might look scary but he's got a great story to tell. For Anzac Ted went to war, keeping soldiers company and giving them comfort. And while he never won a medal, and now doesn't even attract a single vote at classroom Toy Shows, if only everyone looked a little deeper:

'They'd see a hero, plain as day

Who sits upon my bed.

A hero, who saved me and you.

His name . . . is Anzac Ted.'

While several children's picture books cover the world wars, none has ever made the conflict so accessible to children by telling the story of a bear who went to war. Belinda's exquisite watercolour illustrations combine with her rhyming text to create a book that, while perfect for parents and teachers to share with children, is also guaranteed to touch the heart of every adult.

Industry Reviews

'.......As we approach 2015 and the 100th anniversary of the departure of the first Anzacs, Anzac Ted offers parents and teachers a very age-appropriate way of sharing the story of Australia's First World War soldiers with children...........'

Brilliant way to teach younger children about Anzacs


A lovely book well written using a familiar item to bring to life the ANZAC legend in an understandable way for 3-8 year old's. Bought for one child and will be buying many more for gifts.



A gentle introduction to ANZAC day for young children


This book was recommended by a friend and I bought it. I use it when I visit preschools and Long day care centres. It has a gentle approach to introduce feelings about ANZAC day. Thought provoking for young children. How did the boy feel? How did the teddy feel?

Everyone should have a copy

Heart warming story


I purchased this book for my 2 year old son. His father is a Australian defence force member and I thought the book might help my son relate to his father's job and its history. Although the book is a aimed at an older audience, more for 3 years and up, I would highly recommend this book to anyone that has interest in our Australian war history. Its beautifully written, has great illustrations and the story actually brought a tear to my eye. I love reading this book to my son.

Overrated rubbish. Disappointed


Heard about this on the radio. My kids got a copy given to them. They didn't like it. I didn't like it. In fact it was complete hogwash.



I enjoyed this-would a child?


Great around Anzac Day. It might be useful in a loss situation.

This book was purchased as a gift for a 7 y o girl, therfore irrelevant for me to review. This book was promoted on Radio but I don't think it was a good as their promotion suggested.
