About 'Goodbye, Emma'
Imagine that you were a child refugee and were forced to leave your home and your memories behind? What would you take with you? Our young protagonist has to decide how many of his favourite toys, books, board games, and family pictures he could fit in his only suitcase. But leaving his beloved pet dog Emma behind is one of the hardest things for him to do.
Struggling with the idea of introducing the topic of refugees to your little ones? 'Goodbye, Emma' is your book! It helps children relate to the hardships, both physical and emotional, of children fleeing war and torture as it tells the story of a child refugee who is forced to leave behind his pet when his family flees the country.
