Author Rebecca Laing Zammit
Rebecca Laing Zammit is a Primary School teacher with a love of history, especially Australian history and the stories of the ANZACs, thanks to her Great Grandfather Arthur Brown Laing who fought and survived World War I. Growing up on the Gold Coast, the dawn service at Currumbin became an annual tradition. She now loves to take her two daughters down to Currumbin beach on ANZAC day to commemorate and show their respects. A Poppy For Pa is Rebecca’s first children’s book, and is based on her own father Peter asking his Pa all about his time in Gallipoli. Rebecca wrote the book to give young children a bit more of an understanding and insight of what war was like for our diggers.
