Quick Overview

A powerful and necessary picture book - the journey of a child forced to become a refugee when war destroys everything she has ever known. Age: 5 - 7 years. Hardback. 32 pages. Size: 28 x 23cm


Imagine if, on an ordinary day, war came. Imagine it turned your town to rubble. Imagine going on a long and difficult journey, all alone. Imagine finding no welcome at the end of it. Then imagine a child who gives you something small but very, very precious... When the government refused to allow 3000 child refugees to enter this country in 2016, Nicola Davies was so angry she wrote a poem. It started a campaign for which artists contributed drawings of chairs, symbolising a seat in a classroom, education, kindness, the hope of a future. The poem has become this book, movingly illustrated by Rebecca Cobb, which should prove a powerful aid for explaining the ongoing refugee crisis to younger readers. £1 from every copy sold goes to the charity Help Refugees.

'The Day War Came combines Nicola Davies’s simple, hard-hitting text and Rebecca Cobb’s pencil drawings to evoke the destruction of everyday reality for the youngest victims of conflict. Thought-provoking and poignant, it’s an excellent answer to the question of how to talk to children about war.' The Guardian.

Age: 5 - 7 years. Hardback. Language: English. Publisher: Walker Books. 32 pages. Size: 23cm x 28cm.
