I am Adila from Gaza by Mabel Encinas-Sánchez
Award-Winning Finalist in the Soft Cover Picture Book category of the 2019 International Book Awards
Hello! I am Adila and I live in Gaza. Where do you live?
Adila is a five-year-old living in Gaza. Beautifully illustrated, the book carries a powerful message about the everyday life of a girl living in a war conflict zone.
The story helps to enhance social and emotional learning skills from an early age. Because the words and illustrations are not scary or judgemental, the book can be read as a bedtime story where young children can identify with Adlia’s everyday activities and ask questions.
Older children can read the book on their own and talk about their feelings and opinions with peers, educators, and parents. In fact, adults can also enjoy a window into Adila’s life, as her innocence and hope for a better world, where children can be children, is wonderfully refreshing.
