Why do we observe Remembrance Day? What are people remembering? Why do they wear poppies? This clear, sensitively-written first history book allows beginner readers to find out. It looks at the key events of the First World War and shows how the poppy appeal grew out of its aftermath, commemorating the Armistice. Both a very clear, simple summary of a world-changing event and a warning about the damaging nature of war, it is an ideal way to help young readers to appreciate what they see on 11th November, Remembrance Day.
