'Timed for the centenary of World War I, this beautifully told story about a boy and his grandfather will help even the very young understand the significance of ANZAC Day. Ages: 4-6 My granddad says that there are two types of days: those that you want to remember and those that you want to forget... A little 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 his new baby he's never met. With illustrations from award-winning artist Kim Gamble, this beautifully told story - which ends with the boy and his granddad marching in the ANZAC Day parade - will help even very young children understand the significance of ANZAC Day. Ages: 4-6 ' (Publication summary)
