Drawn Across Borders: True Stories of Human Migration

"Drawn Across Borders: True Stories of Human Migration" is a powerful picture book that shines a light on the journeys of refugees and migrants who have had to leave their homes for various reasons. George Butler, a journalist and documentary artist, depicts the stories of people trying to find a place to live in safety and with freedom—often running from war, persecution or poverty. Suitable for middle school and older students, it is appropriate as a read-aloud and may support learning about migration, conflict, and urbanization. The stories within may allow students to explore and discuss the themes and situations that are presented. The book may be particularly useful in a Social Studies classroom where these topics are explored in detail.
