Did you know that this week is National Refugee Week?
The situation that Azzi and her family find themselves in is far from unusual but it may be shocking to the children reading this book. Luckily Sarah Garland is an experienced author and illustrator using her skills to treat the subject with sensitivity.
This is a book not only for those children who will, hopefully, never find themselves made refugees but it is also for the refugees. It is a message of hope, it is sensitive, it is positive, it is beautiful. If you feel moved by the plight of refugees then I would urge you to look at this book.
If you want to teach children about the realities of being a refugee then read and share this book. If you want to read a masterful and well written story, read this book.
If you read nothing else this week, read Azzi In Between and think about those who may be less fortunate than you but who always have hope.
