The Journey by Francesca Sanna
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Shortlisted for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2017 | Longlisted for the 2017 Klaus Flugge Prize | Shortlisted for the UKLA 2017 Book Award | A powerful picturebook which teacher judges described as “taking children to new experiences outside their own”.

What is it like to have to leave everything behind and travel many miles to somewhere unfamiliar and strange? A mother and her two children set out on such a journey; one filled with fear of the unknown, but also great hope.

Synopsis

The Journey by Francesca Sanna

“I look up to the birds that seem to be following us. They are migrating just like us. And their journey, like ours, is very long, but they don’t have to cross any borders.”

Based on her interactions with people forced to seek a new home, and told from the perspective of a young child, Francesca Sanna has created a beautiful and sensitive book that is full of significance for our time.
