If you have been here long enough, you will know that refugee books and stories have a way with me. How they are written, how they represent the struggling characters, the role of the world as we see them going through this. Our World is a Family is a book that gently explores the concept of displacement. It teaches the reader that displacement can happen to anyone, anywhere and for different reasons. It includes diverse range of characters from different parts of the world and where different languages are spoken. This book doesn't just focus on war being a primary cause for displacement, that it is one of many reasons families flee for a better life. What I love about this book is that it takes it a step further to encourage the readers at home to have compassion and welcome refugees with kindness, warmth and full of heart. This book can be a great addition to classrooms and libraries everywhere.
Part of the proceeds of this book goes to http://miryslist.org/ourworldisafamily to help refugee families
