Overview

Imagine having to leave your homeland because you are not safe. You must leave most of your friends, family, and belongings behind. Leaving My Homeland helps explain why some people must flee their country, and the challenges they face as refugees. Inspired by the accounts of many refugees, each book follows a story of a child and his or her family, explaining facts about their homeland and its people along the way. A Refugee's Journey from Iran, When the government threatens Zahra's family for speaking out against its actions, they decide to flee Iran and seek safety in Australia. The boat trip across the Indian Ocean isn't easy. Granted asylum after many months of waiting, Zahra and her family must adjust to a new life.
