This is a book designed to educate children about the unhoused population through the story of a young man named Elijah. Elijah's story is meant to inspire understanding and compassion for those less fortunate.
The unhoused population makes us uncomfortable. The natural tendency is to ignore and turn away from them. Yet, these are our fellow humans who have often been dehumanized because of their situation and vulnerabilities. It's a complex situation to explain to children and, so, the discomfort is perpetuated. This book attempts to provide context to a typical unhoused individual by a brief portrayal of the life that led him to the streets. The hope is that this story will foster compassion and understanding in our children for those that are less fortunate.
