This excellent book for introducing young kids to the plight of refugees is brought vividly alive by the photos and faces of very real children who've been affected. Where Will I Live? uses spare but very affecting text to voice the thoughts, worries, fears, and hopes of kids who are refugees. The text is simple and direct so readers can easily relate. Though there's no direct information about the current events that caused these refugees, each photo names the country where it was taken, which include Croatia, Hungary, Rwanda, Lebanon, Jordan, Slovenia, Greece, South Sudan, Kenya, Cameroon, Myanmar, and Niger.
Throughout this photo essay, the beautiful, expressive faces of the children stare frankly out at us, engaging us in their lives. And though some of the pictures are scarier, especially the one of one young boy looking frightened when blocked by a solider, the kids are often shown smiling, even playing, making it clear that they're kids like any others. A beautiful book to encourage empathy and understanding of world situations, while contributing to programs that help.
