The Banana-Leaf Ball

This book is based on the life of Deo Rukundo whose family was displaced by war in Burundi and who ended up in a refugee camp for many years.  While there, and through the help of Right to Play, Deo and the other children were given hope and taught how to get along by playing soccer.  Later, Deo himself became a coach for Right to Play.

A tale of hope and promise which will fit in well with this theme of the summer reading program and a celebration of diversity.
