TEACHER’S NOTES AVAILABLE HERE

Dreaming Soldiers weaves tales of childhood adventures and battlefield challenges with gentle Dreaming themes.
This is a touching friendship story about Jimmy and Johnno, two young Australian boys in the 1900s; mates who do everything together, sharing adventures and growing up side by side in the dusty cattle yards of an Outback South Australian station and later on the dusty WWI battlefields of the Western Front.
The simple story-telling combines with stunning images to honour the service of Australian veterans and highlight the important contribution of Indigenous soldiers.

“The simple story-telling combines with stunning images to honour the service and contribution of Australian veterans, and Aboriginal soldiers.” – Buzz Words

    This is a touching friendship story about Jimmy and Johnno, two young Australian boys in the 1900s; mates who do everything together, sharing adventures and growing up side by side in the dusty cattle yards of an Outback South Australian station and later the dusty WWI battlefields of the Middle East.
