As a part of my Google Innovator project, I have been making my way through books about migrants & refugees. Reading for fun is always a win in my book, and reading stories about a subject I am passionate about is even better!
If you are a teacher (or person) wanting to learn more about the refugee experience, I highly recommend picking up one or more of the books below. All have been available through my local library. If you want to go a step further, I’d consider adding some of these to your classroom library or reading them with your class. The more we share about these experiences, the more our students will build empathy and knowledge of the world! It also helps normalize conversations about other cultures, which can build safety for students who live in a world of mixed cultures every day.
Without further ado, here is the very beginning of my list, consisting of picture books that would be perfect for a read aloud!
1. The Day the War Came by Nicola Davies
2. Mustafa by Marie-Louise Gay
3. Dreamers by Yuyi Morales
4. Undocumented: A Worker’s Fight by Duncan Tonatiuh
