Settling In

Settling In.

by Abbas Nazari; illustrations by Elspeth Alix Batt 

Abbas Nazari was only seven years old in 2001 when he and his family became refugees. There was a war in Afghanistan, and the fighting was coming closer and closer to the family’s village. They had to leave their home and find a new place to live. They had to leave their friends, and everything they owned, and set off on a long and very dangerous journey over deserts, mountains, and stormy oceans.
