Anzac Day is fast approaching and it’s going to look different this year, particularly for teachers and students.
‘Meet the Anzacs’ is a nonfiction narrative picture book about how Australia put together a first national army to fight in WWI. There are teaching notes here, and a video here
‘The Anzac Billy’ is a picture book story of a boy missing his dad, and the story of the filled billies that were sent to Gallipoli in 1915 from Australia and New Zealand. Teachers notes can be found here.
‘Haywire’ is a middle-grade novel about the Dunera, and the 2500 + internees she carried to Australia in early WII, told from the persepectives of two young teenagers caught up in the maelstrom of war.
