KPE Episode 384: "Wearing the Poppy"

Chante talks to Brooklyn about "Wearing the Poppy" by A J Toledo.
If you have ever wondered;
Why do New Zealanders wear red poppies on ANZAC Day? What is ANZAC Day all about? Why does a flower mean so much to so many people? 
Then this book is for you...

This moving story of the first ANZACs is told through the experiences of one family, whose letters, diaries and memories bring to life New Zealand in the First World War. How the red poppy came to symbolize a lost generation is a poignant and fascinating account, filling in the gaps for young New Zealanders who are discovering their own family history.
