What young lad would not be intrigued by the title ‘Shark Goggles and Dog-poo Jam’?  Certainly, the sublime moment when Gaby gets to wear her granddad’s medal at the ANZAC parade in Maggie Rainey-Smith’s story ‘The Dawn Parade’ will resonate with all children who can recall a proud moment in their lives.  These texts are a great resource for parents and teachers alike to collectively read and share their own stories.  Recommended.
