Inspired by the real experiences of children on the street, Niños en la calle is a story of survival about Rafa and Sofía. When a hurricane destroys all they’ve ever known, the siblings are forced into living on the streets of Santo Domingo. Will they overcome this seemingly impossible situation? Niños en la calle is a gripping story of struggle, perseverance and the value of hope in times of adversity.
With beautiful illustrations by Pawel Kardis.
|"The story gives a condensed view on the many traumatic things that can happen to kids who need to live in the streets without resources. Even though the book ends happily, it makes you acutely aware of the many children that still have to live in horrible circumstances."|
