A beautifully illustrated picture book that sensitively explains larger issues and crises that dominate the news in an appropriate manner for children.
The Children in Our World picture book series helps children make sense of the larger issues and crises that dominate the news in a sensitive and appropriate manner. With relatable comparisons, carefully researched text and striking illustrations, children can begin to understand what war and conflict are, how they affect people and how readers can help those who are affected.
Where issues aren't appropriate to describe in words, Hanane Kai's striking and sensitive illustrations help children visualise what war and conflict are, in images that are suited to their age and disposition.
The series forms an excellent cross-curricular resource that looks at refugees, war, poverty and racism making them ideal for tying into Refugee Week and dicussions about current affairs.
