The refugee crisis is on many people’s mind at present, and many parents and teachers are searching for books to help them explain the complex issue to their children. New York Magazine’s The Cut compiled an article on children’s books about refugees and immigrants, as recommended by booksellers and librarians.
The recently released picture book, Lost and Found Cat: The True Story of Kunkush’s Incredible Journey, written by Doug Kuntz and Amy Shrodes and illustrated by Sue Cornelison, was one of these recommended books. This touching, true story tells of an Iraqi refugee family who loses their beloved cat, and the incredible world wide effort to help them reunite with their pet. The librarian who recommended Lost and Found Cat said that, “Books are a great way to explore complex subjects — they often give kids a way to identify by making the event or idea come to life.”
