Written by Hollis Kurman
Illustrated by Barroux
Published by Charlesbridge

More than half of the world’s refugees are children fleeing scary situations in search of a safe place to live.

Arriving in a new place is stressful for newcomers, especially when the newcomers are little ones. But this beautiful counting book helps readers see the journey of finding a new home and the joys of being welcomed into a new community. From playing to sleeping, eating to reading, celebrating to learning, Counting Kindness proves we can lift the heaviest hearts when we come together. Endorsed by Amnesty International.
