The book launch of Blue as a Cornflower, Red as a Poppy was in the North Shore Times. We held the book launch on Friday 9, 2018. This was two days before the armistice centennial. It was a very timely reminder of the shared destinies of our two countries.
At the book launch of Blue as a Cornflower, Red as a Poppy. Last year the students in this photo wrote and illustrated a book about the experiences of French and New Zealand soldiers at the Western Front during World War I. The French part of the story was focused on Verdun. The New Zealand part of the story was focussed on the Somme. These were both very important battles for New Zealand and France.
