Melinda Szymanik wrote about why writers feel compelled to write war stories, here. The Sapling, an online children's book magazine recommends great New Zealand Anzac Stories here and Children's Book Daily recommends these top 20 Australian Anzac picture books here.
You can also see an exhibition about the research that authors and illustrators do when creating war stories for children at the Anzac Stories: Behind the Pages Exhibition presently being hosted by the following libraries:
Mitchelton Library, Brisbane, Queensland: April – May
Broome Library, Western Australia, April - May
Nundah Library, Brisbane, Queensland: June – July
Albany Library, Western Australia - August
Holland Park Library, Brisbane, Queensland: August – September
Wynnum library, Brisbane, Queensland: October – November
Will post more libraries that are hosting the exhibition when they confirm dates.
There's also another exhibition in New Zealand called What Lies Beneath and Napier and Taradale Libraries are presently hosting it.
Please find below some posters to help you bring awareness to the children's ANZAC books available in Australia and New Zealand.
Here's an A3 poster you can download with all the books in the exhibition to date.
Schools and Libraries can download this Scholastic poster from here.
