The story is told through the eyes of a young girl who accompanies her father and Grandfather on ANZAC day. They rise early for the dawn service and then the small girl sits atop her father's shoulders as she watches her grandfather march by with his friends and for the friends who didn't come home from war. It emphasises the importance of remembering the sacrifices other have made. The illustrations are wonderful, and the sensitive story is dealt with in a simple, yet heart-warming way. I bought this book to help my young children understand the importance of the ANZACs and their legacy to our country.
