Usha and the Stolen Sun
From 5 to 8 | 32 pages
When at last Usha reaches the wall, she tries to kick it down, climb it, yell her way through it—but the bricks don’t budge. It’s only after remembering her grandfather’s words and hearing voices on the other side of the wall that cunning Usha changes her plan to make sure her voice is heard. She shares her grandfather’s stories, even the ones that rightfully make her angry, and piques the curiosity of the people on the other side until they are inspired to remove the bricks, one by one to better hear what Usha has to say.
Because Usha didn’t give up, they bring the wall down.
Inspired by the idea of civil discourse, this book offers a timely message of communication and compassion. Bree Galbraith, Josée Bisaillon
