Second Story Press
This stunning photo essay takes a look at the thousands of children around the world who have been forced to flee war, terror, hunger and natural disasters, young refugees on the move with very little left except questions. It's hard to imagine, but the images here will help unaffected children understand not only what this must feel like, but also how very lucky they are. The final message is that children, even with uncertain futures, are resilient and can face uncertainty with optimism. With images from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
A poignant photojournalistic look at the issues confronting refugee children and their families...The true power of the book lies in the ability to spark classroom conversations, highlighting the need for cultural awareness and compassion. Consider to prompt elementary school discussions on empathy for refugees.-- School Library Journal
