They’d see a hero, plain as day
Who sits upon my bed.
A hero, who saved me and you.
His name … is Anzac Ted.
Anzac Ted is Belinda Landsberry's powerful, poignant story of a little boy’s teddy bear that was passed down to him from his grandfather. Battered, torn, missing an eye and an ear, he might look scary but he’s got a great story to tell. For Anzac Ted went to war, keeping soldiers company and giving them comfort.
This book has been chosen specifically as a gentle introduction to the ANZAC story and the importance of remembrance for a younger audience. Told sensitively by Story Box Library favourite, Mike McLeish.
