After a baby survives Haiti’s devastating 2004 floods by floating down a river in a basket (“Maybe my grandmother put me there / I don’t remember”), his rescuers at the orphanage name him Moses. With spare free verse and bright, digitally created artwork, this moving picture book, based on true events, personalizes the recent news images. The miraculous story is told through the viewpoint of Moses, now eight years old: a wall of water and mud buried much of his village, his family disappeared, and he was saved. Then an earthquake came, followed by cholera. Now the boy helps a priest and the sisters in an orphanage save other victims. Without ever denying the realities of devastation, the child’s voice tells an astonishing survival drama that connects with contemporary stories of people helping to rebuild homes, buildings, and schools after natural disasters. Final pages include color photos of the individuals and the orphanage that inspired the story, along with a brief interview with the real-life Moses.
