Children’s book for Refugees
Marina Aromshtam wrote her recent book LITTLE SUITCASE TRAVEL during Covid to comfort children (from age 4) with the prospect of freedom to travel again soon. After she herself had to flee from Russia into exile and after so many mothers and families have to flee from danger to other safer countries, this book took on a completely different, deeper meaning.
The book with illustrations by Vera Korotaeva has been awarded the Russian Kornei Chukovsky Prize in 2020. Only two years later, the author would be considered an enemy of Russia.
