“A very good resource to start a conversation about migration with children, and to show how the world can come together.”

Migrations: Open Hearts, Open Borders

Written by ICPBS
Published by Candlewick Press

From Mexico City’s Natalia Gurovic comes a jewel-toned bird opposite the words “From up here I see no borders.” From P.J. Lynch comes a seabird with the artist’s personal wish for a safe journey and an openhearted welcome. From Argentinian illustrator Isol comes a child borne aloft on a bird below the words “Life is movement.” From Jon Klassen, a sparrow, familiar and extraordinary. Sending a powerful message about human migration, more than fifty artists created postcards for the Biennial of Illustrations Bratislava 2017, curated by the International Centre for the Picture Book in Society. From South Africa and Sweden, Chile and the Czech Republic, Iran and Indonesia — more than twenty-five countries in all — their images and words are now gathered into a stunning keepsake volume.
