In times of crisis such as a war, women and children tend to be the most vulnerable.

Liz Franklin is back with a make belief story, which is based on real stories coming from recent happenings in Ukraine.

The story starts with a conversation between mother and child, where the former assures the latter that they will be at a safer place after leaving home to a different country. They end up at one of the refugee centres.

Read the e-book to get the twists and turns of the story.

As much as the book is written to help Ukrainian children in refugee centres, children of the world can also relate to what their contemporaries go through in times of war.

As usual the art and illustration used in Liz Franklin’s e-book adds to the enjoyable reading experience.

This is just the first book in a 3-part series for children to understand the war in Ukraine. “Even though different countries have different political views, children and situations they face are universal. I want to raise awareness and empathy so children understand what is behind the news stories they see and hear, says Liz.

This book is being translated into Ukrainian language and will go out as a free e-book both in English and Ukrainian only for the children of Ukraine.

Proceeds from the e-book that will be sold to the rest of the world will go to help Ukrainian children in refugee centers.


Liz Franklin spearheaded several initiatives to empower the world’s children in the battle against COVID-19 with free e-books which were translated into 25 languages, impacting children in seventy nations. This is another one of her purpose-filled works, as she continues to inspire several people around the world with her thoughtfulness.

And like the book says, “people are saying scary things but it’s gonna’ be okay!”
