Review "Brilliant and beautiful and inspiring. A book that should be read with every child in the world! An instant classic as solid as the stones on which it is based!" (Eric Walters, award-winning author and member of the Order of Canada 2016-05-16) "Ruurs writes purely and warmly, with the text set in both English and Raheem's Arabic translation...She deftly conveys the happiness of peaceful childhood, then the confusion and the fears born of war and migration, and the relief and curiosity of arriving at a new home...Each illustration is masterful, with Badr's placement of stones as careful as brush strokes, creating figures positioned to tell the whole story without the benefit of facial expressions...An astonishing book that allows the humanity of refugees to speak louder than politics and introduces readers to one of Syria's incredible artists." (Kirkus Reviews, starred review 2016-08-01) "It's exquisite! One can only pray that its message will spread and make the difference we need." (Mem Fox, award-winning and internationally bestselling children's book author 2016-09-08) "Stunning, original artwork both childlike and sophisticated; a text that will both break and mend your heart." (Jane Yolen, award-winning author of Devil's Arithmetic and The Stone Angel. 2016-09-12) "Readers will be fascinated by the stone-collage illustrations created by Syrian artist Badr, who arranges expressive tableaux of people formed entirely of rocks and pebbles...A unique offering that will open eyes and soften hearts." (Booklist 2016-10-01)
