Edwidge Danticat - Eight Days

Eight Days

A Story of Haiti

Author: Edwidge Danticat; Illustrator: Alix Delinois

  • AGES 4 - 8 
  • Genre Fiction
From National Book Award nominee Edwidge Danticat comes a timely, brilliantly crafted story of hope and imagination, and a powerful tribute to Haiti and children around the world. Hope comes alive in this heartfelt and deeply resonating story.
While Junior is trapped for eight days beneath his collapsed house after an earthquake in Haiti, he uses his imagination for comfort. Drawing on beautiful, everyday-life memories, Junior paints a sparkling picture of Haiti for each of those days — for example, flying kites with his best friend or racing his sister around St. Marc's Square — helping him through the tragedy until he is finally rescued.

Love and hope dance across each page, granting us a way to talk about resilience as a family, a classroom, or a friend.
