A beautifully illustrated non-fiction picture book that sensitively explains 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 what poverty and hunger are, how they affect people in countries all over the world and how readers can help those affected.
Where issues aren't appropriate to describe in words, award-winnning illustrator, Hanane Kai, uses striking and sensitive illustrations help children visualise the people and situations impacted by poverty and hunger with 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, and this book is ideal for tying into discussions on food, wealth and current affairs.
