Map of Dreams by Uri Shulevitz
Book DescriptionWhen war devastates their country, a boy and his parents are forced to flee to another country far east, where they must live in a small room shared with another couple. Food is scarce. But one day, when father goes to the bazaar to buy bread, he comes home with a map instead. The boy and his mother are furious, they are so hungry! But the map floods their cheerless room with color. The boy becomes fascinated by it and is transported far away without ever leaving the room. Father was right to buy it, after all.

Book Review: Map of Dreams by Uri Shulevitz - Reviewed by Sheepcoate (02 May 2013)
Map of Dreams is an interesting book which will take a little explaining to your child.
The story is about a refugee's and how they have to move countries after war and they have nothing, little food and are forced to share with another family.
This book really opens your eyes to how some less fortunate people live from day to day. This book is a little escapist as well when the father brings back a map, rather than some food and how the little boy escapes his every day life in the map. Lovely illustrations which capture the mood.
