Navid's Story - A Journey from Iran is a picture book telling the story of Kurdish Iranian refugee, Navid. When Navid was just four years old, his father was forced to flee their home in Iran because his life was in danger.
Told in Navid's own words, the story highlights the terror and hardship that Navid and his mother suffered during their long journey to follow his father to a safe place, and the strange feelings that Navid felt when they were reunited after a long time apart.
The BAFTA award-winning Seeking Refuge stories were originally produced as animations for the BBC. These powerful and evocative stories have now been captured in book form as rich, visual testimonies of the torment, hope and resolution of young refugees who are seeking asylum and adjusting to life in new countries all over the world.
Navid's Story - A Journey from Iran is an excellent cross-curricular resource that looks at asylum, war, separation and integration and what it is to be a refugee today.
