When the war reaches Rama’s village, she and her family are forced to leave their homes and join “a river of people in search of peace.” This heartwarming story is illustrated by a Syrian artist’s stunning stone figures that magically convey the family’s many emotions. A wonderful way to introduce children to the plight of Syrian refugees.

— Rhonda

Rama and her family, are forced to flee their once-peaceful village to escape the ravages of the civil war raging ever closer to their home

With only what they can carry on their backs, Rama and her mother, father, grandfather and brother, Sami, set out to walk to freedom in Europe. This unique picture book was inspired by the stone artwork of Syrian artist Nizar Ali Badr, discovered by chance by Canadian children's writer Margriet Ruurs. The author was immediately impressed by the strong narrative quality of Mr. Badr's work, and, using many of Mr. Badr's already-created pieces, she set out to create a story about the Syrian refugee crisis.
