What Is a Refugee?

A picture book by Elise Gravel.

Elise Gravel

An accessible picture book that oh-so-simply and graphically introduces the term "refugee" to curious young children to help them better understand the world in which they live.

Who are refugees? Why are they called that word? Why do they need to leave their country? Why are they sometimes not welcome in their new country? In this relevant picture book for the youngest children, author-illustrator Elise Gravel explores what it means to be a refugee in bold, graphic illustrations and spare text. This is the perfect tool to introduce an important and timely topic to children. (From Schwartz & Wade)

Gravel is a Montreal-based illustrator. Her books include The Worst Book Ever, The Cranky Ballerina and The Mushroom Fan Club.
