Colour of Home This picture book deals sensitively with the impact of a new school and country, on Hassan, a young boy whose family are refugees from the war in Somalia. Anxious, and knowing only a few words of English, he joins in a painting class and paints a picture of the colourful home engulfed by war that he has left behind. A friendly teacher, and a Somali speaking support worker help him settle down, however, and he begins to see colours in his new home, too.
