When We Were Alone

This is a beautiful book that shares the negativity of the boarding school indigenous children were sent to in a way that is less scary for little ones. It also shared how the children coped with the negativity and lack of support. While what happened to the children at the schools was horrible, it’s still important to talk about it. I found the rhythm of the story to be steady and the illustrations intriguing. Definitely a great book to expose young readers to difficult situations and ways to cope with them
