|Summary, etc.:|| "This stunning photo-based picture book for younger readers takes a look at the thousands of children around the world who have been forced to flee war, terror, hunger, sickness, and natural disasters - young refugees on the move with very little left except questions. It's hard to imagine, but the images here will help unaffected children understand not only what this must feel like, but also how very lucky they are. The final message is that children, even with uncertain futures, are resilient and can face uncertainty with optimism. Gripping images are from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and include photographs of children in countries including Lebanon, Rwanda, Iraq, Niger, Hungary, Jordan, and Greece, among others."-- Provided by publisher.
Young refugees wonder what their new homes will be like in this nonfiction photo-based picture book featuring images of refugee children from around the world.

Adding to the swiftly growing pile of picture books about refugees, this slim volume, written by Canada's United Nations ambassador, features dozens of photos of refugee children from all over the world. Simple statements and questions, such as "Sometimes scary things happen to good people," and "Will I be able to sleep in the same place every night?" accompany the photos, which are unobtrusively labeled by location but otherwise have no context. The pictures feature children engaging in familiar activities, such as laughing with friends or mugging for the camera, as well as less common ones, like getting into an overcrowded boat or sleeping on the bare ground. While the smiling faces of children are certainly relatable, this will likely raise more questions than provide answers. But the ultimate message, "I hope someone smiles and says âWelcome home.' I hope that someone is you," should encourage little ones to view these children with compassion, and that is valuable. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
