Description


In a tender tale of community and resiliency, two brothers who become refugees find hope in their bond with each other and through their connections with the people they encounter.

“We were not alone,” is the refrain of this moving story that encourages empathy and acts of generosity while celebrating the power of human connection. A little boy looks to his big brother for guidance after a disaster levels their city. Together, the boys journey to a sheltering beach, where they are welcomed by fellow survivors. Absorbing the warmth of the new community, they begin to help others and to regain a steadying sense of hope. An author’s note includes information about how to help refugees.
