We Will Remember Them The Story of Remembrance Day

We Will Remember Them The Story of Remembrance Day

Author: S. Williams Illustrator: Oliver Averill Format: Hardback Release Date: 24/06/2021

Produced in partnership with the Royal British Legion, 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. It explains the history behind poppies, why we hold 1- or 2-minute silences and what happens in commemorative parades around the world. The book includes poems and quotes from veterans who bravely fought in these wars.

Step out your front door and begin a journey of discovery around the world! Fold out the richly illustrated pages of this expansive concertina book to clamber over mountain ranges, trek through jungles and sail across vast seas. Spot wildlife, visit amazing cities, experience different cultures and see famous landmarks as you whiz by. With so much to explore on this globetrotting adventure, it's a good thing the book stretches to an incredible 2.5 meters long - you'll get halfway around the world before you even have to turn the page! Stretch out the book's accordion-fold pages and take in the wonders of the world's cities and landmarks - traveling through over 60 countries. Then turn it over and explore the amazing diversity of creatures and landscapes on planet Earth. What can you spot on your travels? Explore even more of the world with the critically acclaimed The Street Beneath My Feet (March 2017) and The Skies Above My Eyes (August 2018), companion books from the Look Closer series.
