In poetic language and soft watercolor illustrations, this gentle lullaby of a tale evokes a story about finding refuge.
Escaping flames and barbed wire, a mother, a baby, a boy, and a dog flee for their lives, climbing into a small sailboat to set off to sea. A polar bear, too, has come adrift. When will they find land? Who will welcome them in? Where will they call home? With lyrical narration and child-friendly illustrations, Glenda Millard and Stephen Michael King create a comforting and timely story about courage, endurance, and hope — and what we can be for one another.
