Genre: Children’s Picture Book
Displaced by the Pakistan floods, Rani’s family has taken refuge at a relief camp where they are doing their part to help other flood victims. Eight-year old Rani wants to assist but doesn’t know how. Heeding the advice of her father to help in a way only children can, Rani embarks on a journey to bring true joy to a dear friend on the occasion of Eid.
The Pakistan floods force Rani and her family to take refuge at a relief camp. Life in camp is a lot different from life at home, but with her family and friends around, Rani manages just fine. The book starts out with a reguler day in the life of Rani, then the floods come and a helicopter dispatches them to the refuge camp. Then it picks up again with life in the refuge camp, where every one of Rani's family members seem to be helping out, but Rani struggles to find something she can do to help.
The writing was just right for little kids, the colors were bright and shiny, and the book is a delightful, fun adventure, and at the same time, might be an eye-opener for kids to learn about other cultures, the consequences of the floods, life in a refuge camp, and more.
