Home of the Brave by Katherine Applegate

I just finished listening to this audio book yesterday:

Home of the Brave

We have friends who have escaped horrors from the fighting in different countries in Africa, including South Sudan.  When they find out we have a couple of cows at home they usually ask to come see them.  This book helped me understand a little about why they ask this.

It's a wonderful book to listen to, read aloud and think about.  I think it also helps the reader glimpse a little bit of how different sensory experiences might feel to a person coming from another country, or perhaps even people with autism.
