Description of this Electronic Book

This bestselling picture book about a boy and his grandfather will help even the very young understand the significance of ANZAC Day. '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. Ages: 5+ REVIEWS: 'This clever and touching picture book bridges the generation gap with a way for young children to relate to the experiences of older family members ... a simple, cleverly constructed book that is ideal for both home and the classroom' - Kids' Book Review 'This is highly recommended for all readers ... a great way to introduce a unit on Gallipoli or World War 1 in the classroom.' - ReadPlus.com.au 'an engaging way to introduce children to the trials and tribulations of war at a level they can understand' - Canberra Times
