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 discussions
about current affairs.
