Why a children’s book?
This format allows us to share a complicated issue in a simple and innocent way: through the eyes of a child. Our cartoons provide anonymity while still representing the individuals who have inspired us from the beginning.
We hope these stories encourage conversation about diversity, inclusion, and the global refugee crisis.
This book is based on a true story of a young Rohingya boy from Myanmar who was forced to leave his home.
His family was separated and scattered across the world, something that is all too common among refugees.
Even though they are separated across oceans, their unwavering family connections hold them together.
I enjoy the pictures of the families and how the pictures depict differences in cultures. Family is very important to me, so I enjoyed a book that talks about the importance of family and how you can be together no matter where you live.

I like that the lizards were added in to each page, because it adds a game to play while reading the book.
