"Bold lines, saturated colors, and expressive faces serve to emphasize the human cost of displacement. Gravel's strength is her ability to humanize this topic." --Booklist "Effective and compassionate.... With simple text and vibrant illustrations, this picture book introduces young readers to refugees as 'people, just like you and me.'" --School Library Journal "Manages a rather titanic feat of humanizing an overwhelming humanitarian crisis for young audiences with a direct, no-frills text that avoids euphemisms but maintains accessibility. The illustrations are similarly kid appropriate." --Bulletin
