Monir: A Rohingyan Holiday is a children’s book about equality. Inspired by the current Rohingya crisis in Myanmar, the book follows Noori, a Rohingyan child as she goes about her daily life.
The story is based around the 1988 extermination blueprint, showing the knock on effects through a child’s eyes. The story covers aspects like Noori having to change her name to Monir to go to school.
Monir has the potential to open a dialogue between parents and children: they will be able to empathise with characters in the story and discuss equality using real examples of prejudice.
