5.0 out of 5 stars Childhood Regained- and important and educational teaching tool
Reviewed in the United States on May 9, 2016
I have been reading the anthology, Childhood Regained, with my grade seven class. Although some of the subject matter has been a little disturbing, my students have been intrigued by the stories presented. This is mainly due to the fact that the stories are current and based on the real-life circumstances of children around the world who are suffering and surviving conditions and crises that we, in Western society cannot even fathom, as a reality.

The school at which I teach has recently received an influx of Syrian newcomers, many of which do not speak any English, and therefore it is impossible for my students or myself to communicate with them to the extent to which we can even hope to understand what they must have experienced, and at such a young age. A book such as Childhood Regained, delivers the truth and does not spare us those unpleasant details that we find so difficult to face. I feel this is crucially important and instrumental in instilling compassion and awareness in our students,
especially in this day and age, when we are integrating people who have suffered trauma unimaginable, in relation to our reality.

A story that my students found particularly poignant, which demanded the attention of all, and which generated extensive thought and discussion was "Intahari, Confessions of a Suicide Bomber". It was so interesting to see how my grade seven students initially took it quite lightly and even amused themselves with some of the more graphic details of the story (the way they would while playing a video game or watching an
explicitly violent movie) until they realized that this story was based on current and real-life situations, situations that they have never and hopefully will never have to experience in their own life times. By the end of the story, feelings of anger, sadness and ultimately joy and relief were evoked. I actually witnessed them growing from the experience.

While journeying through the book, Childhood Regained, my students have gained a higher level of empathy and increased global awareness. I feel
that this is a very important piece of literature and I am excited and driven to share and to recommend it to other educators and students.
