Synopsis

Why am I Here? by Constance Orbeck-Nilssen

A remarkable book for encouraging self-reflection In this empathetic book, a young boy wonders what life would be like if he lived somewhere else. What if he lived in a city with millions of people? What would it be like to be a refugee from a war-torn country? Is he meant to be in a different place? Or is he right where he's supposed to be? Stirring and impactful, this book will cause readers to ponder life's big questions and have a better understanding of their place in the world.

Reviews

Kirkus Reviews An introspective book that will provoke reflection. . . . This Norwegian import takes young readers seriously, respecting their innate sense of compassion and need to derive meaning from the seemingly inexplicable.
