Authors:
David Starr
Format: Paperback
David Starr is the principal of one of the most diverse elementary schools in Canada. The students at Edmonds Community School in Burnaby, BC come from all over the world. Their parents are often refugees who have fled some of the most dangerous places on earth -- places like Sudan, the Congo, Afghanistan, Eritrea, Afghanistan, and Iraq. And like their parents, these children have often witnessed harrowing events before finding safety in Canada.

In From Bombs to Books, David Starr shares the deeply moving stories of his students, their parents, and the staff at Edmonds. He describes the upheavals many of these families have undergone. He tells us about the teachers and other support workers who have embraced them and dedicated themselves to making a different in their lives. And he introduces his students, who are surprisingly hopeful and resilient, despite the many traumas they have faced.

Sometimes funny, sometimes touching and inspirational, From Bombs to Books shares the remarkable stories of the children, the families, and the staff at an exceptional Canadian school.
