A New Non-Fiction title on the ANZACS for children and young adults

NZ Writer and Illustrator
Maria Gill, illustrated by Marco Ivancic
ANZAC Heroes 30 Courageous ANZACS from WWI and WWII
Scholastic NZ  2016  $26.00hb   88pp Full index
ISBN 978 1 7754 3363 7
Themes: ANZACS/ Biographies / World War I/ World War II
In plenty of time for ANZAC Day 2016 comes this memorable and beautifully produced book to add to the growing number of available ANZAC titles for children and young adults.  30 ANZAC men and women are shown here with their achievements, their medals and their timelines. The background text will be challenging for some students but there is so much to look at in ‘boxes’ of information it makes it a book to be used at many levels.  A very large team of support people has been involved in working toward the production. 
I love to think of this book in schools and colleges getting more and more worn out with so much handling. Best buy two copies! 
Year 5 up/ Age 9 up

To the writer and illustrator and the publishing team at Scholastic - congratulations - you must all be feeling very proud and happy with the result.
