Ali's Story: A Real-Life Account of His Journey from Afghanistan

(4) K-3 Seeking Refuge series. Illustrated by Salvador Maldonado. Each book offers a first-person account of a refugee child's separation from family due to hardship or war: Ali leaves Afghanistan with his grandma as his parents stay behind, while Juliane endures a painful separation from her mother in Zimbabwe before they leave the country together. Despite the odd, sometimes disjointed digital images, simple storytelling makes these texts relatable to young readers. Review covers these Seeking Refuge titles: Ali's Story and Juliane's Story.
