Product Description
I used this booktalk with 7th and 8th grade students in my library as part of my Using Picture Books with Older Readers series. Prior to this booktalk, we discussed what refugees are and why people would need to flee their home countries. We then read the picture book Four Feet, Two Sandals by Karen Lynn Williams and Khadra Mohammed.

The booktalk features 14 YA and MG books about refugees from various countries and political situations:

A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park (Sudan)
A Time of Miracles by Anne Laure Bondoux (Republic of Georgia/USSR)
Bamboo People by Mitali Perkins (Burma/Myanmar)
The Day of the Pelican by Katherine Paterson (Kosovo)
The Good Braider by Terry Farish (Sudan)
Now Is the Time for Running by Michael Williams (Zimbabwe)
Shooting Kabul by N.H. Senzai (Afghanistan)
I Lived on Butterfly Hill by Marjorie Agosin (Chile)
Where I Belong by Gillian Cross (Somalia)
The Red Pencil by Andrea Davis Pinkney (Sudan)
Zlata's Diary by Zlata Filipovic (Sarajevo)
Weedflower by Cynthia Kadohata (Japanese internment camps, WWII)
Guantanamo Boy by Anna Perera (Pakistan & Guantanamo Bay, Cuba)
Outcasts United by Warren St. John (various nationalities settling in Georgia, USA)
