When you have to leave behind almost everything you know, where can you call home? Sometimes home is simply where we are: here. A imaginative, lyrical, unforgettable picture book about the migrant experience through a child’s eyes.
When a little girl and her younger brother are forced along with their family to flee the home they’ve always known, they must learn to make a new home for themselves — wherever they are. And sometimes the smallest things — a cup, a blanket, a lamp, a flower, a story — can become a port of hope in the storm. As the refugees travel onward toward an uncertain future, they are buoyed by their hopes, dreams and the stories they tell — a story that will carry them perpetually forward.
This timely story introduces very young readers, in a gentle non-frightening and hopeful way, to the current refugee crisis.
