's review

really liked it

A simply told yet powerful picture book about the innocence of childhood and a world torn apart by the advent of war. This is all about the loss of the world that we once new, the loss of family and the difficult journey of a refugee traveling towards a new country.

'The Day War Came' is about the real human cost of war through the eyes of innocence, through the eyes of a child - it's about the search to find welcome. This is a well written, moving and important book - it's a story about tolerance and understanding and ultimately of hope.
