We Remember

Aurhor Stacey Hattensen, Illustrator Nina Sanadze

We Remember is a full colour illustrated big book for lower primary students and teachers. It is part of the Remembrance Day 2001 Education Resource Kit that was published by the Department of Veterans' Affairs.

The aim of the kit, which also contains 2 posters, is to educate young Australians about the contributions made by Australian war veterans in shaping the nation and its traditions. The big book includes the illustrated story ‘Remembering Charlie Cooper’, teacher notes with student activities and maps.

  • Culture and identity
  • Civic duty
  • Ceremony
  • Symbols
  • Nation
  • Change
