    In the first world country sitting in a couch going through this book, I have no right to judge. I gave the highest rating to promote it so more people can open their eyes. It’s beyond my imagination what Syrian children going through. The drawing are innocent, but dauntingly powerful.

    Everyone should read this book. "Out of the mouths of babes", as it were...my heart broke as I made my way through it. It's tough. But it's nowhere near as though as the situations these children have lived through. Nor is it as tough as they have had to be. If you have a chance to get hold of this book - I implore you to do it. I'm not sure the devastation wrought upon the lands from whence these children have come can be any better expressed...and certainly not the experiences of them, their fam Everyone should read this book.

    Curated by Ben Quilty and with a foreword from Richard Flanagan that will rip your heart in two. They say a picture says a thousand words. Through the drawings of Syrian children we see the Syria that the world has failed. Utterly heartbreaking.

    This is an incredibly powerful and sobering book. I saw it briefly in a colleague's office and knew it could be an amazing, eye-opening resource in our school. Now that I have had a chance to look at it more closely, I am not 100% sure how we will use it, but still believe that we should. Just as refugees' stories can be told in literature (I am currently finishing the excellent The Boy At the Back of the Class), this tells those stories through images from children of all ages who have lived th This is an incredibly powerful and sobering book.

We need to keep praying for an end to this evil and to keep lobbying our government to provide greater support for these and many other refugees.

    Comment: One cannot peruse this book without questioning how the governments and peoples of the world can help this devastated population more. Children's drawings speak with a bold, simple and honest humanity that resonates with the core of what makes us human beings. For further reading and sketches on this subject try Ben Quilty and Richard Flanagan's book "Notes on an Exodus".
