Children’s Literature and Refugees

Greek and Armenian refugee children near Athens, 1923

There are a number of books for children out there that focus on refugee stories and the causes of forcibly migrated people. According to Forced Migration Guide’s bibliography on the genre, “Children’s literature relating to refugees can be used to explore such themes as compassion, empathy, tolerance, justice, conflict resolution, and a respect for human rights.”

PaperTigers.org focused on refugee children’s literature for the last month, and they have published reviews on a number of books relating to this issue of asylum-seekers.

If you are a parent or know any parents or parents-to-be, check out the reviews and this guide to collecting children’s refugee literature for an interesting twist on the typical kids’ story.
