Product Details

Praise

Bold lines, saturated colors, and expressive faces serve to emphasize the human cost of displacement. Gravel’s strength is her ability to humanize this topic.” —Booklist

Effective and compassionate…. With simple text and vibrant illustrations, this picture book introduces young readers to refugees as ‘people, just like you and me.’” —School Library Journal

“Manages a rather titanic feat of humanizing an overwhelming humanitarian crisis for young audiences with a direct, no-frills text that avoids euphemisms but maintains accessibility. The illustrations are similarly kid appropriate.”  —Bulletin
