My Name is Not Refugee by Kate Milner

Our town is not safe for us any more.
Leaving will be sad, but quite exciting too.
The journey will be long, but Mum will be there every step of the way.
How would you feel if you had to leave your home behind?

My Name is Not Refugee is an interactive picture book told from the perspective of a young boy that has become a refugee with his mother. This is perfect for introducing why people become refugees to children of all ages, it asks the reader to consider what they would do if they became a refugee and is perfect for sparking group and individual conversations. This book is not just for onlookers it has been designed with young refugees in mind and reinforces that while they may be refugees – they should not let this define who they are.

Kate Milner has created a book that is both heartbreaking and hopeful; in this current climate of multiple global crises it is an essential book for all libraries and collections.
