The Day War Came

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Rebecca Cobb. After the war comes, the young orphan narrator journeys with other refugees until she reaches a town where she attempts to go to school; a teacher turns her away, telling her, "There is no chair for you to sit on." Based on a real event, this timely eye-opener, supported by mood-attuned pencil and watercolor art, concludes with a lionhearted boy's act of kindness.
