With our 24/7 news cycle and constant access to the latest headlines, the world can be a scary place. Now imagine you're a child trying to make sense of it all! What does this news mean? How does it affect me? That's where Children in Our World can help. This beautifully illustrated non-fiction series takes a timely look at today's biggest issues and sensitively explains the crises that dominate the news in an appropriate way for young children. Each book uses relatable comparisons, carefully researched text, and striking illustrations to help kids understand the many difficulties that children just like them face in the world today. Refugees and Migrants discusses the questions "What does it mean to be a refugee—or a migrant? Why would people leave their homes?" It answers kids' questions, offers reassurance, and empowers them with ways they can help those affected. Where issues are not appropriate to describe in words, award-winning illustrator Hanane Kai uses a deft hand to create powerful illustrations that help children visualize the people impacted by poverty, hunger, war, racism, and more. All of the images are sensitively rendered and perfectly suited for younger children. These books are an excellent cross-curricular resource—use them to explore these important issues and tie them into discussions about food, wealth, compassion, empathy, and current affairs. (Ages 6—10)

For as long as some children come from homes where migrants and asylum seekers are spoken of disapragingly it is obviously important that schools attempt to provide a factual and more sympathetic picture of what is happening and why people are on the move or blocked from movement. * The School Librarian * This book will give parents and carers an excellent opportunity to explain the unfamiliar terms and support them as they struggle to understand what they are seeing and hearing. * The Carousel * Words and pictures combine to excellent effect ... an excellent way to develop empathy and understanding * Parents In Touch *
