Refugees and Migrants

By Ceri Roberts
Illustrated by Hanane Kai

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

A beautifully illustrated picture book that sensitively explains larger issues and crises that dominate the news in an appropriate manner for children

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 who refugees and migrants are, why they've left their homes, where they live and what readers can do to help those in need.

Where issues aren't appropriate to describe in words, Hanane Kai's striking and sensitive illustrations help children visualise who refugees and migrants 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 on current affairs.

It's My Body

Louise Spilsbury
Authors:
Louise Spilsbury

This brightly coloured, illustrated title explains to children about body privacy and why private parts should be kept private. Children will learn that their body belongs to them and they can say 'no' if they don't want anyone to touch their body. They'll discover what is inappropriate, and be encouraged to speak up if they are uncomfortable with how other people treat them. It also covers the topic of secrets and when you shouldn't keep a secret.The book looks at respecting each other's boundaries and becoming aware that some children, particularly those with autism or anxiety, may find hugging or any kind of touch, unbearable.It also covers bullying, such as pinching or kicking, and shows children the best way to speak out to help stop these things happening.Written by Louise Spilsbury, the text explains, simply and clearly, without scaremongering, why body privacy is important.

There are all kinds of feelings. We can feel happy and sad, excited and disappointed, worried, angry, curious and calm. Our feelings change, often several times in one day. When we understand our feelings, it helps us to understand how other people are feeling, too. How are you feeling today?
