Today during Book Club the girls and I shared stories about the ANZAC Day Dawn Service and the extraordinary men and women who took part in shaping Australian history. We all took turns in reading a beautifully illustrated picture book titled ‘Meet the ANZACs by Claire Saxby’. This book talks about the Brave men who landed in Gallipoli in World War I, the initial recruitment, along with excitement and naivety the men showed whilst enlisting to go to war.
Below is an introduction to the book:
“ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. It is the name given to the Australian and New Zealand troops who landed at Gallipoli in World War I. The ANZAC name is now a symbol of bravery and mateship. This is the story of how the ANZAC legend began.”
After the First World War, the Poppy was adopted as a symbol of Remembrance, we finished off by creating paper Poppies to commemorate the brave men who lost their lives serving their country. Ms Ambrosini
