I need only to get through the rest of this day This day and no other Where there is a child there is always joy I always thought this was true but the story told otherwise This is a true to life story of Salva an 11 year old boy who found little to almost no place in a world where people struggle to survive an almost endless series of conflicts during the Second Sudanese Civil War that started in 1983 To adults caught in a tumultuous succession of life threatening obstacles Salva is a burden someone who will only slow them down just another mouth to feed sniffs It s unbelievable where the young boy found all that courage and will to live Of the many things I ve learned from him it is to cling to hope the wisest possible way that hit me the most He tried not to lose hope At the same time he tried not to hope too much Written in a lyrical narrative but easy and timeless style of language allowing the reader to feel the story completely seized my heart The vivid wistful recollections of the young boy s perilous journey by foot from Sudan to Ethiopia then later to Kenya were plainly told nothing very emotional In fact the writing style seems to be even a bit dismissive of tragic events as if in a life sucks but hurry up and move on now approach but it still brought me to puddles of tears It s an inspirational piece of literature that is definitely worth your timeThank you to ShannaDarina for bringing this book to my attention I had no idea this ever existed before I stalked your profile and of course I didn t forget HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY DEAR FRIEND WISHING YOU A SPECIAL DAY GOOD HEALTH HAPPINESS AND MORE GREAT BOOKS TO READ 3

There are some stories that need to be told regardless of how sad or horrifying they might be The challenge becomes even harder when the stories are being told to children How much should one include What details are necessary and what can be left out without changing the story too much And what about stories that involve extreme violence and severe suffering How best to tell the story These uestions can be debated over and over again because there is no one right answer No two authors will present the same story in the same way This book follows two main characters Nya a child living in Southern Sudan who must spend every day walking to and from a pond bringing water to her family and Salva who twenty three years earlier became a refugee when his village was attacked by soldiers from the north The story about Salva is the longer of the two and follows the eleven year old as he runs from his school and must somehow cross hundreds of miles of desert swamp and forest to reach safety After six years in the refugee camp Salva faces terror once again as the Ethiopian soldiers force all the Sudanese refugees back into Sudan killing hundreds in the process But Salva finds the strength and hope to survive and becomes a leader among what has become known as the Lost Boys of the Sudan These boys were orphans who struggled to survive on their own Some of these boys were able to find a way to not only survive but to help those left behind Salva s story intersects with Nya s in an interesting way showing that the efforts of one can have a far reaching effectWhile the book does explain some of the horrors that the Lost Children of the Sudan and the other refugees faced it does not do so in a graphic way and the story is not about despair or violence it s about hope which makes the book great to share with students who face their own challenges

I was looking for a kid book on the environment and knew children s book author Linda Sue Park had in 2002 won an award for A Single Shard and though I knew nothing about this book rated than 48K on Goodreads yay I listened to it in a little over two hours For a book this short it probably crams too much information for middle grades kids to easily digest but they can do classroom or home research on it too There are two parallel stories both of them based on extensive interviews and research one of a boy Salva Dut one of the Lost Boys from the second Sudanese Civil War in 1985 and a girl Nya in 2008 We get a pretty fast version of the growing up story of Salva who is separated form his family lives for years in refugee camps and is lucky to be chosen to come to the US to live Nya has to walk two times a day many miles to get water for her family as resources are uickly and literally evaporating as with many places on the planetIt s a powerful story about war water refugees a genocide courage and a little bit of hope Salva speaks in the end about a Sudanese project he sets up involving wells that kidsfamilies could get involved in That Salva and Nya s stories link in the end is a cool thing here Terrible horrific things happened and still happen in Sudan but it s an important story to hear about told simply and as a model from Park about socially committed research that young people and adults can take a deeper dive into
