Review

In Lubna and the Pebble, Lubna and her father travel to a refugee camp trying to find a new place to live. In the midst of Lubna’s journey she discovers a Pebble that becomes her friend to help her face the struggles of her dislocation. Lubna is a wonderful little girl who fully understands the value of friendship, sacrificing her pebble to comfort a sickly boy. The warm illustrations contribute to her loving nature. The dark blues effectively creates comforting images as Lubna comforts others. Parents will enjoy Lubna and the Pebble for its ability to teach children the value of friendship within hard times. Highly Recommended Sarah Trigg, Centennial Library Intern, Cedarville University.
