Refugees and Migrants discusses the questions "What does it mean to be a refugee--or a migrant? Why would people leave their homes?" It answers kids' questions, offers reassurance, and empowers them with ways they can help those affected.

With relatable comparisons, carefully researched text and striking illustrations, children can begin to understand who refugees and migrants are, why they’ve left their homes, where they live and what readers can do to help those in need.

"How do you raise empathetic children? I believe that you raise empathetic children by inviting many kinds of people into your home, practicing grace and empathy in your daily life, and by helping children understand that there are many kinds of people and that because we are very fortunate, we must help those who are not so fortunate. [...] I found this book to be very helpful in explaining difficult experiences to children. The text is easy to read with a topic on each page. Some of the topics are Leaving Home Behind, How Do They Travel, and Talk about Your Worries. The last two pages of text in the book allows children to "talk about it" and How Can You Help? These are important additions to a fact-based book because children are naturally empathetic and want to help." —Miriam Downey, The Cyberlibrarian
