Hoping for Peace in Sudan (Peace Pen Pals) (Library Binding)
Many people know that war has devastated Sudan's people, killing millions over the past 30 years. However, they may not know the causes and motivations behind the many factions of Africa's largest country. While these topics are discussed, a glimpse of the civil war through the eyes of a girl in northern Sudan and a boy in the south are also provided. As letters are exchanged between the two, one in the city of Khartoum and the other in a refugee camp, they relate how differently their lives are affected by the conflict. Readers will gain a thorough understanding of the profound cost of this war through age-appropriate language and striking photographs.
