The Migrants are a disparate group though they are travelling, en masse, together. We watch them work and bond together, see them stop overnight, and appreciate their connection. Seeking a place of safety and hope unites the Migrants, as does their past. Wherever they have come from has forced them to leave. We know from their white round eyes, pinched mouths and weary stoops that they have experienced too much.

We watch them huddle together as they face the faceless, nameless, characterless body who holds the bag. Money? Trade? His giant stork emphasises the stretch of their journey, while the black backgrounds suggest these travellers seem to lack an existence. They’re anonymous and empty.

What will they suffer, endure? Thereafter, is their somewhere for them? All of them?

Migrants is a challenging, intelligent, wordless picture book, a commentary on the refugee situation, purpose and status.

Why is storytime important?

If we’re going to be all formal and official we’d say that reading stories to children is important because it fosters a love of reading and learning from a young age, which in turn can have long-lasting positive effects on their academic success and overall development. We could also say that reading with children helps develop language and literacy skills by exposing them to a rich vocabulary and proper sentence structure. We could even add that it encourages imagination and creativity as children immerse themselves in different worlds and characters.

We can say all of that and it’s true and important, but really, in our hearts and in our guts we all know that reading with children is inherently right, there is something fundamental and instinctive about it. It’s a closeness, a bonding, a moment to slow down, to take that moment when you’re not unloading the washing machine or scraping uneaten food off plates, or worrying about that upcoming meeting, when you can be present in the moment, and tell your child a story.
