" so relevant and far reaching. includes follow up to show success in their later lives. highlights refugee stories from all over the world, not just those trying to come to the U.S.A. " said.

" Read this book and then share it with as many people as possible. Powerful stories about young refugees risking everything to find a safe place to call home. " said.

" Would use with older students although in picture book format due to being very text heavy and a serious topic. Would pair nicely with the novel, Refugee, by Alan Gratz. " said.

" A timely collection of true stories of desperate young refugees seeking a safe haven. " said.

" A timely book and excellent resource for young readers about young boat refugees, stretching from World War II to present day, with examples from Germany, Vietnam, Cuba, Afghanistan, to Ivory Coats. Timelines, statistics and powerful artwork accompany the brief stories of individual refugees. " said.

" As the subtitle indicates these are stories of 5 young people who had to flee their home to survive. The picture book follows the same format for all five stories, providing short background history, definition of key terms, quotes, data, photographs, and the most important part: what happened to each of the five. Excellent list of resources, acknowledgements, & credits. Loved the book design! " said.

" Great book for people of all ages. The 5 real stories that represent different time periods and cultures/countries are so well done with timelines, graphics and fantastic page layout. Very engaging. I'm sure everyone will learn a bit more about past refugee crises from these personal accounts. I pray that it won't stop there, but yet it will translate into the current crisis and spur our young ones on to being a an advocate for those who are searching for safe shores. " said.

"Powerful stories matched with equally powerful art. Every first world child should be read this book, and many others like it... Over and over again, while they're eating their sugared cereal in the morning, after taking their hot soapy showers, and putting on their fought-for cool new shoes. I know that this book shook up my young one, and images of the story continue to flash in my mind--just what ought to happen. Grateful for the peace and plenty that we have, and saddened that so many others have to struggle and fight and die for it every single day..." said.
