How do you explain what it means to be a refugee to a child? It is such a foreign concept to kids who have grown up only knowing the consistency and security of a safe place to live and the comforts of a stable country of birth.
This book articulates what life might look like as a refugee family both matter-of-factly and with grace. Illustrations that are simple yet evoke feelings and empathy, and carefully chosen words that explain succinctly without oversimplifying or sugar coating. An excellent book to begin a conservation on why kindness counts more than anything.
