The Paper Boat: A Refugee Story

We rated this book:


In this wordless book, a girl is eating breakfast with ants, and she rescues one out of her soup. The girl and her family packs to leave as refugees. They split apart, and the girl goes with her mother to hide. While the girl eats a bun, her mom folds the buns wrapper into a boat so it can be a toy for the girl. They follow a trail of ants to their grandmother’s boat. The ants find the dropped paper boat, and they sail on after the girl. Seagulls surround the ants and kill some. The ants start eating the boat, and thunder sets the boat on a wild ride. The ants are safe, and they see the girl at the table, a new table in a new apartment.

I like this story and how the ants find the boat. I don’t usually like wordless books, but I really liked this book because it had ants and an interesting story. I think the girl and the ants are very brave. I also liked the drawings and how they look like they were made out of paper. I recommend this book to lonely refugees and ant lovers.
