World Kid Lit Challenge Day 17

Wonderful DRS volunteer Claire’s fascinating website includes reviews of children’s books such as “Tomorrow” by Nadeen Kaadan, which deals with many of the issues faced by refugees fleeing their homes..

“This book tells the story of Yazan who can no longer go to the park. He no longer goes to school. He even starts to miss it “which was a surprise”. It’s too dangerous to be outside and Yazan’s mother has become so preoccupied she doesn’t even paint anymore. But Yazan’s concerns aren’t about the news; he wants to go to the park. One day, Yazan decides he’s going to the park, takes his red bike and leaves the house alone. Everything is different to how it used to be. I won’t spoil the ending, but needless to say, he makes it home again safely. “
