some children’s poems for ANZAC DAY

9781775432074 9780143505907

I recently posted a number of fabulous ANZAC poems written by children. You can read two below and the others here. The other day I bought myself a copy of Jim’s Letters after hearing John McIntyre from The Children’s Bookshop in Wellington review it on the radio. I am going to read it this morning … then plant some new plants in my garden.

 

ANZAC

I love Anzac biscuits

Because they are crumbly and tasty

 

But they remind me

That soldiers didn’t get many treats

 

I love Dawn Service

Because it’s an adventure

 

But it reminds me

That soldiers are important

 

It is good to remember

But it is sad to remember.

We Will Remember

I wear these medals

I will remember

 

My Grandad wore these medals

He will remember

 

His Dad wore these medals

He can’t remember

 

His Dad earned those medals

He wouldn’t want to remember.
