Hope, Where Are You? is the story of six children around the world who are experiencing school closures. Each story follows a similar pattern of frustration/challenge, finding their hope and importantly spreading their hope to others. Along with the six main characters, you will also find the illustrated characters of 'Hope' and 'Germ' who add a comedic twist. Armand Doucet and Elisa Guerra, as globally recognized and award-winning teachers, saw the impact of school closures on children around the world and wanted to help change the narrative and give children and families hope.

For people that need hope in life
And if your poor or don’t have much or consistently move this is a good book 📚
it was good
Seems informative, but....
After getting this book for free and because I’m a speech therapist working in the schools providing speech therapy via Zoom, I thought this would be a book I could screen share with my students. I read the first page and it begins with a little girl named Mulu living in Africa who says she’s 11 and her sister was married at 12. She walks 2 hours to get to school and she tries to keep busy to not think about hunger. All of these are very important topics and should be discussed with children, but as difficult as the topics are for adults to grasp, I think children need to have a certain level of maturity to understand these injustices. I only read the first page and closed the book. I may open it again and be selective on topics I choose to share with my students.
