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 Nigeria, When a violent terrorist group targets her village in Nigeria, Baseema and her family decide to seek refuge in another country. With limited places to go and few people able to help, Baseema hopes to find safety in a country where she will be allowed to go to school-and live without constant fear.
