No place called home!
A refugee is another human being, like everyone else. The only difference is that the place they used to call home is no longer suitable for them. It could have been because their country is at war or they are ill-treated. If they had a choice, they would never seek a new home. They would love to stay with their friends and family and live peacefully. But that choice is not available to them, so what happens to them? Where do they go?
We picked this book for its theme. The book explains, in simple terms, who is a refugee, why someone becomes one, where they go, and what they expect? The illustrations are simple yet powerfully capture the essence of this delicate subject. ‘Refugee kids speak’, and ‘Famous refugees’ is a perfect end to the book.
What Is a Refugee? by Elise Gravel is an easy-to-grasp book for young children to understand the idea of refugees and help them empathize with their fellow human beings.
