ANZAC Day is celebrated in Australia and New Zealand on 25 April. It is a time when we remember New Zealanders and Australians who fought in wars around the world. We might attend a dawn service and parade, talk to older relatives about their memories, buy and wear a red poppy, make ANZAC biscuits, and remember our family members who fought in wars.
We have a great kids webpage that you can check out for anything you would like to know about ANZAC Day and Gallipoli. You’ll find fast facts, links to books and resources that the library has on ANZAC Day, and links to some great websites with extra information.
On Friday I’ll be talking about some of my favourite ANZAC books, including A Rose for the ANZAC Boys, The Ghosts of Iron Bottom Sound, When Empire Calls and The Red Poppy.
