Book of the week: Refuge

By Pathways

Written by Anne Booth, illustrated by Sam Usher and published by Nosy Crow

Told from the point of view of a donkey, the book follows the tiring journey taken on by Mary and Joseph as they flee from King Herod in search of safety. The book’s unique take on the Nativity seeks to help young readers understand the challenges faced by thousands around the world who are displaced from their homes and take on long, difficult journeys in search of safety.

The understated but evocative illustrations bring the high stakes of the journeys taken on by refugees to life while helping the reader empathise with the characters in the story.
