'My granddad says there are two types of days: those you want to remember and those you want to forget ...'

A young boy visits his granddad and thinks about the important days in his life: his first day of school, playing soccer with his team, the day his baby sister was born. Yet through the illustrations the reader sees a parallel story of the grandfather's experiences at war: wearing his brand-new soldier's uniform, with his fellow diggers in the field, looking at a photo of the baby he's never met.

With illustrations from two extraordinary new talents, Isobel Knowles and Benjamin Portas, this powerful story from author Kerry Brown will help even young children understand the significance and importance of our national days of remembrance.

Remembrance Day story book


I ordered this book for my 3 to 4 year old children in my Prekinder room at daycare. The children understood the story and followed along with the book, and asked questions along the way . Good age group for this story book , I would recommend it to anyone who would want to teach their children about the history of Remembrance day and Anzac day.
