Every year, crowds of people come together to remember young men and women who fought and died in wars. This beautifully illustrated non-fiction book explains to children why it’s so important to remember those we have lost in wars.
The sensitively written text tells of the world wars as well as other wars that are remembered at this time. We look at the history behind poppies, why we hold 1- or 2-minute silences and what happens in commemorative parades around the world.
The book will include poems and quotes from veterans who bravely fought in these wars.
