Marwan’s Journey by Patricia de Arias (Illustrations by Laura Borràs)
Thanks to the @kidlitexchange network for the review copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
This powerful picture book follows the journey of a young boy, Marwan, a refugee seeking a new home. The writing conjures beautiful images and is relatable to anyone on a journey to find a new home. Despite his situation, Marwan’s voice is filled with hope for a brighter future.
This is an ideal picture book for explaining the plight of refugees and an ideal mirror for those on such a journey themselves. The beautiful illustrations are a perfect complement to the wonderfully crafted text.
