Dawn Parade

Dawn parade.

by Philippa Werry

illustrated by Jennifer Cooper

This book presents a moving account of a child’s first experience of a dawn service. With his dad, Leo watches the marchers with their medals glinting, listens to the speeches and the “Last Post”, and joins in singing the national anthem. After the service, Leo and Dad leave poppies on the war memorial and read the names of those who have died. Keyword: Anzac
