#gifted We were recently sent the beautiful Hello! A Counting Book of Kindnesses to review by the team @otterbarrybooks This wonderful picture book has captured our hearts along with The Boy at the Back of the Class. Inspired by @onjalirauf @barrouxillustrations and @holliskurman_writer my beautiful 9 year old twins wrote this One boy at the back of the class No one knew from where he came One girl befriended him And told the world his name. 1 sister, perished at sea 2 parents, lost then found 3 bullies, calling him names 4 friends, save the day 5 secret plans, including the Greatest Idea In The World. 6 seeds from a pomegranate, the perfect taste of home. 7 of the Queen’s special guards, marching in a line 8 reporters, chasing the tale of Ahmet: The Most Famous Refugee Boy in the World. 9 years old, the age of the friends, all different, yet all the same 10 plus one – questions asked by Alexa as she got to know her friend With Ahmet and his parents united This story had a happy end We learned of the plight of refugees And the power of a friend There are many refugees in the world Often children, lost and all alone What can you do To help all those who seek asylum and a home?
