Silent Night, My Astronaut

An All-Ukrainian Best Book and winner of Goethe-Institut Best Book Design, this picture book is a powerful and uplifting introduction to the War in Ukraine from a child's perspective.
The evening is long. It’s silent outside. We love silent. The most important thing is for the sirens not to howl.
It is a bright day in February, but 7 year-old Ia and her family are in the dark. Church bells are ringing, sirens are screaming. The War has begun. Ia holds her astronaut doll close, and she wonders if there's a super-powerful astronaut in the sky keeping her safe. A beautiful and powerful fully-illustrated picture book diary of the first ten days of the War in Ukraine that is full of love, hope and faith in peace.
“ …a poignant symbol of war’s effect on children.” KIRKUS
