Grade 3-5-A slim introduction to the travails of Bosnian children who have suffered as a result of civil war. The text is interspersed with firsthand accounts highlighted in yellow boxes. Unfortunately, the historical background is not always as clear as the first-person narratives. The excellent, full-color photographs are powerful without being overly graphic. There are scenes of destruction, a portrait of a child in a hospital, and images of cemeteries, but there are also pictures of children playing. Difficult terms, such as "concentration camp," "pro-Nazi forces," and "Sunni branch of Islam" are not explained. While this book can help younger readers form meaningful images to go with news headlines, older students may find Sherry Ricchiardi's Bosnia (Millbrook, 1996) more informative.
