I Came From the Water: One Haitian Boy's Incredible Tale of Survival by Vanita Oelschlager, Mike Blanc
Based on a true story, this is the tale of 8 year old Moses, who was found in the water in a basket after a flood in Haiti. He was raised in a Catholic orphanage and he tells about life in Haiti and the orphanage and how people can help the relief groups in Haiti. The illustrations are bright and colorful and lovely and part of the proceeds from the book go to the orphanage. It is a lovely book and I highly recommend it. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
