My Beautiful Birds

(2) K-3 While their Syrian village burns, Sami's family walks until they reach a refugee camp: "We are safe." But Sami is heartbroken over the loss of his beloved pet pigeons until a quartet of birds arrives. Del Rizzo uses polymer clay and acrylic paint to create vibrant pictures. Beauty and sorrow sit side by side in this compassionate and age-appropriate depiction of contemporary refugee life.
