Blackout! A Refugee Story (Chapter Book)
A story for Muslim kids about an ice storm leaving two cousins learning about gratitude and patience.
Yusuf’s cousin Ahmed is a Syrian refugee. After the death of Ahmed’s father, Yusuf’s parents work hard to bring Ahmed and his mom to Canada.
When they’re finally on their way to Toronto, Yusuf is excited! He spends hours making sure everything is perfect for Ahmed’s arrival and plans to teach him all about life in Canada.
But when an ice storm hits during Ahmed’s first night and cuts off power for three whole days, Yusuf realizes that he’s the one with so much to learn.
A portion of profits from this book go to the Syrian Canadian Foundation‘s mental health and wellness programs for Syrian newcomers to Canada.
