Real life testimonies of young people feeling their homelands. Originally made as a series of animated films by BBC Learning, these books explore the experiences of young people whose lives are affected by conflict in their home countries.
When Navid's father's life was in danger, he fled their home in Iran and came to the UK. Navid and his mother followed him to the UK a couple of years later and it was strange for Navid to be reunited with his father as things had changed so much.
He describes why he had to leave and his long journey over here. Navid tells of his struggle to adapt to life in another country. Narrated by Navid, we see the devastation that conflict can have on children and families. Leaving family and friends and starting a new life in a new country was hard for Navid and his family.
This series of books is based on the Bafta winning films commissioned by BBC Learning and produced by Mosaic Films.
The stories deal with the topics of war, separation, immigration and what it is to be a refugee, and can be used to open up discussions for any age range about seeking asylum.
The films also explore the feelings of isolation that children can experience when they try to adapt to life in a strange country.
Navid's Story - A Journey from Iran is told in his own words.
