It tells the story of Azzi, a refugee who fled from her own country which was experiencing war to come and live in England.

With only her teddy bear and a blanket they flee, across a dark sea with many others in a small boat. Azzi lives in a un-named country where her father 'worked as a doctor', her mother 'made beautiful clothes' and her grandma 'wove warm blankets.This, coupled with the review it got over at Playing By The Book meant that it was one book that was very much on my radar. The tapestry of themes around inclusion, helping others, family love, starting anew in a foreign country are wonderfully depicted. This was an amazing book that clearly displays the emotions and events that could take a place for a family who have to leave a country. It also has strong themes of family which makes the book even more moving when Grandma is left behind before she comes to England. very touchy story and very expressive illustrations, a lot to tell and to explain to your kids behind its lines , about war, homeland meaning , the refugee's suffering, family and hope.

It shows the challenges experienced by these children in leaving their home country and settling down in a new one, as well as how we can make these children feel welcome at school. It was still a very good book for kids to read to gain an understanding of what other children are going through. I'd recommend this book to share with Y2 upwards, particularly in PHSE lessons, and it would be a good resource for Refugee Week.

She misses her grandma and dad is unhappy as he is not allowed to work and earn a living for his family in this country. In the new country they must learn to speak a new language, find a new home and Azzi must start a new school. I picked this book up thinking it could be good to promote a multi-cultural classroom but it was so much more than that! A smashing, Amnesty-endorsed, story of a family's escape from war and their journey to a strange new country (probably the UK). Telling the story of real-life issues that many young people go through all over the world- living through war, having to flee, moving to a country where they do not speak the language.

The story is a little more nuanced than some, with several moves, leaving a grandmother behind and then having her come join then. She's crafted a kind, warm-hearted and very very quietly provocative book centred around the journey of the titular Azzi. Sarah Garland has written and illustrated over forty picture books and adventure stories for young children. Azzi arrives in a new, unfamiliar country where she must learn a new language and live among strangers. It offers many discussion points in PSHE; drama and writing opportunities in Literacy; and learning about plants in Science.The warm, bright colors depict the destruction of war, as well as the warmth of welcome of a new country. Told through the eyes of children, this moving collection of short stories focuses on the experiences of asylum seekers from all over the world. So she works hard and plants surprise beans for her father, all the while wishing that her grandmother was there.

It's in how she bridges that gap and starts to weave the two together, that's where the vibrant heart of this book kicks in. Beautifully illustrated, it conveys perfectly Azzi's feelings of loss and displacement in an absorbing, and ultimately uplifting, adventure story. The winner of 2013's Little Rebels prize for radical children's book, this graphic novel tells the story of Azzi and her family who leave their war-torn country, and manage a difficult and dangerous journey to safety.

This is a fantastic picture book which is set out similarly to a comic strip which provides so much extra detail and tells the narrative in its own way. It shows the differences in countries and cultures, and children would be able to notice similarities and differences between Azzi's life and their own lives. What a lovely book about a refugee and her family seeking refuge in a new country, the themes discussed are done so in a very good manner to not only facilitate discussion but children who read this to have empathy for others. It prompts many good discussions about how one might feel as a refugee with the hardships possibly encountered when having to escape from war and other dangers.
