Imagine if, on an ordinary day, after a morning of studying tadpoles and drawing birds at school, war came to your town and turned it to rubble.

Imagine if you lost everything and everyone, and you had to make a dangerous journey all alone.

Imagine that there was no welcome at the end, and no room for you to even take a seat at school.

And then a child, just like you, gave you something ordinary but so very, very precious.

In lyrical, deeply affecting language, Nicola Davies's text combines with Rebecca Cobb's expressive illustrations to evoke the experience of a child who sees war take away all that she knows.

What we love about this book

  • tells the story of refugees through a child 
  • simple child-friendly illustrations

Sad, meaningful, engaging

I bought this book for my nephew, who had recently gone with me to volunteer for war refugees. He could relate the content with the stories of the people we met, and we were reminded of what truly matters in life.

Thank you CL for sharing your experiences with us and how you involve your nephew in such meaningful efforts. Grateful to know that this read was helpful. You're one really awesome aunt!
