Description - Refugees by Brian Bilston
Refugees is a book of two voices. The first one sees the people fleeing from war and persecution and asks, Why here? Why my country? It is a feeling many people share. It is one of fear and suspicion. But when you read the text the opposite way, a new voice emerges. It says, 'Why not make them welcome? Why not share the peace we have?' The world is undergoing a period of mass human migration. Whether this is caused by war, persecution or economics, the people we see on the news in those camps are waiting waiting to live their lives. There are two sides to every debate. There are two sides to a wall. This book tells the two voices with balance and skill. It is the perfect book to share with an older child who is struggling to understand the refugee crisis. It does not judge but examines the motives to our opinions and encourages further discussion with parents and teachers. AGES: 6 plus AUTHOR: Brian Bilston is a secretive figure.
