    A young boy is awakened in the middle of the night and told that the family has to leave to go to a safer country When waiting and waiting in a refuge center becomes just too much NO MORE WAITING , a kindly old woman tells him the story of another young boy from Palestine who understands just what it is like to have to leave home.While not everyone has experienced the trauma of being a refugee, many of us young and old have gone through the difficulties of relocating and settling into a new and unfamiliar town country It is a great comfort to remember the words of the young hero of Far From Home Sometimes I miss my old home But when I feel sadI remember that I am not alone Far from Home is a sensitive treatment of a timely subject, and the colorful illustrations draw the reader into the story.

    Told with sensitivity, Far From Home starts when a young boy is awakened in the middle of the night by his parents They tell him they must leave their homeland and move to another country immediately The boy is informed he can take only one toy and chooses Rabbit The story is told from the boy s point of view in a way that is easy for young children to understand All the boy wants is to go home to his room, his toys, and his friends The family walks, travels by bus, and waits and waits The boy is comforted when an old woman tells him a story about another young boy Jesus who had to leave his homeland The ending brings hope not only to this boy, but to all who are in similar situations A much needed book in light of the immigrant crisis in the news I highly recommend this book.
