livingLiving in a Refugee Camp is a children's picture book that is part of the Children in Crisis book series.

This book tells Carbino's story about his life in the Sudan during the civil war. Carbino's story is certainly for young mature readers, because it covers war, conflict, hunger and fighting.  Men, women and children were killed, and their village was destroyed.
