School Library Journal - Rebecca Gueorguiev, New York Public Library

"People having to flee from conflict often face hardships not fully comprehensible to small children. The ordeals of refugee families undergoing such journeys are explored here in an attempt to ease the fears and emotions such turmoil can generate. In most cases, the circumstances surrounding each forced relocation are sketchy, but from the perspective of children, that might be an accurate representation of the situation. Digitally created artwork enhances most volumes with a rustic quality." - School Library Journal
