    This is a children’s book written from the point of view of a child refugee that caught me in my seventh decade. In the delightful verse that it is written in, it gave me something quite profound to think about and at least two out loud laughs. Very well written indeed and beautifully illustrated this is a small book to give a child but one that can make the adult reader think about an important issue that will affect us for the foreseeable future.
    Highly recommended.

    I am me is a heart warming story about a family of refugees arriving in the UK. Everything is strange and different from the food to the language, to the weather.

    “We’re learning how to make safe trips
    on buses, and use English money.
    Someday the weather might be sunny.”

    The book is written in rhyming verse and the language is rich but simple enough for a child to enjoy. The illustrations are beautiful, made from fabric and a perfect compliment for the story.

    This book is a wonderful way to teach young children about refugees and help them gain understanding and compassion.
