This is a story for kids of loss, refuge and hope. A little boy overhears his parents talking about having to leave the country as it isn’t safe anymore. He can’t take much with him but has to take his rabbit. It is a difficult situation for a child to understand.  It is a refreshing  perspective on the refugee.Wonderful kid’s book

I would highly recommend it for any library or child who may be questioning why things are happening to children right now. 

Christian Impact:

The story of Christ is told in the book yet it could be for any child.
