My Name is not Refugee
Kate Milner

Ages: 3-7

A much-needed, lovely book for small children which explains the refugee crisis in a simple, child-friendly way” – Jacqueline Wilson

A young boy discusses the journey he is about to make with his mother. They will leave their town, she explains, and it will be sad but also a little bit exciting. They will have to say goodbye to friends and loved ones, and that will be difficult. They will have to walk and walk and walk, and although they will see many new and interesting things, it will be hard at times too.

A powerful and moving exploration that draws the young reader into each stage of the journey, inviting the chance to imagine the decisions he or she would make.
