The photographs in this book are mesmerizing. They show children and families in various situations, living in refugee camps, escaping on boats, wandering and dealing with having no home. The simple narrative, explains the plight of these scared weary refugees who feel lost and hopeless and just want to obtain a normal life once again. Their lives are difficult, they are constantly on the move and never know what they will face the next day. The parents are worried about the family's safety from wars, corrupt officials etc. However, through all this, the children play, make friends and have hope that they will find a home. They wonder what it will be like and what their new lives will bring. The book ends on a high note, which unfortunately is not the way all their lives and struggles will end, but it is for children so there is some sugar coating. One of the things I really like about this book is that all profits will go to refugee organizations to help those who are in this situation.
This book will teach children about the plight of others, how they live and what they deal with on a day-to-day basis. It will also help to teach them how to be grateful for their own country, and most of all compassion to enable them to reach out and help those less fortunate. I highly, highly recommend this book to all schools and public libraries. It's timing with the current situations around the world is perfect.The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley.
McCarney's photographs capture both the uncertainty and fear of the children, and the joy and optimism that many share. Even in the worst of circumstances, children still forge friendships with their peers and find time to play. Most kids never have to endure the kinds of experiences the kids in Where Will I Live? go through. For that vast majority of children (and adults) Where Will I Live? provides colorful examples to inspire us to be thankful for national and residential stability. More importantly, McCarney inspires us to think about how we, individually and as a nation, might be able to help refugee families.
