Children's Literature about Refugees: A Catalyst in the Classroom

by Julia Hope
£19.99   paperback  Trentham Books Ltd (2017)

Children 'It could happen to anybody', observed one nine-year-old child when her teacher read a book in class about refugees. Fiction provides the perfect conduit for the experiences of refugees so that young refugee students feel their experiences are validated, and their peers come to understand their situation.
 
In this book, Julia Hope explores ways of engaging in class with children’s books about refugees. Using Beverley Naidoo's novel 'The Other Side of Truth' along with a book aimed at younger children - Mary Hoffman's 'The Colour of Home' - Hope offers concrete case studies on how children's literature about refugees can be used productively in the classroom.
 
As more and more people flee wars, violence and political oppression, this book gives teachers both pedagogical support and knowledge of the resources, and shows how they can tackle this challenging topic. It is indispensable for educators of younger children and for researchers who are interested in controversial children’s literature.
