Mustafa 1

Mustafa by Marie-Louise Gay is an incredible book. It tells the story of Mustafa, a young boy that fled his country with his family to make a home in their new country. He watches and explores his new life, but he watches from a distance. Sometimes he feels invisible as he watches the people around him speaking in language he doesn’t understand. But one day, a young girl doesn’t let language stop her from finding fun things they can do together. It’s a heartwarming story that explores what it can be like to be in a strange new land. It’s a great book to explore the topic of refugees in a way gentle enough for young kids. It also has a beautiful message of kindness and friendship. I couldn’t help but tear up a bit. There are so many good lessons in this book, but ultimately it comes down to treating people with an open mind and heart and accepting them for who they are. Have you had the chance to read this book?
