    The title should be: Dear World: A Syrian Girl's Story of War and Plea for World War 3. Bana Alabed is the new Nayirah. Absolute propaganda.

    Een boek over de Syrische oorlog door de ogen van een 7-jarig meisje: dat is Hallo Wereld van Bana Alabed. Ze heeft een eenvoudige boodschap: ze wil vrede voor haar en de andere Syrische kinderen. Bana Alabed begon te twitteren tijdens de oorlog in Syrië vanaf dat ze de woorden ervoor in het Engels leerde via haar moeder. Haar tweets werden net zoals de muziek van Aeman Ahmad, de ‘Pianist van Yarmouk’, opgevangen door de wereld. De schrijfster wilde het uitschreeuwen dat de wereld de burger [...]

    4.5 SterneIch bin das Mädchen aus Aleppo zeigt in sehr berührender und aufrüttelnder Weise, wie es Menschen im Krieg, in diesem Fall in Aleppo, geht. Dies geschieht vor allem aus der Sicht von dem kleinen Mädchen Bana.(view spoiler)[Das Buch beginnt damit das Bana und ihre Mutter beschrieben, wie das Leben in Syrien vor dem Krieg ausgesehen hat. Dabei stellt sich auch heraus, das deren Leben zwar sehr viel von dem Islam beinhaltet aber nichts davon wirklich negativ ist. Banas Mutter und Vate [...]

    I was given this book as a Christmas gift and am very glad to have read it. A few reviews that I have seen talked about whether there was propaganda involved with a young girl sending out messages on Twitter about what was happening in Aleppo. I don't know about that at all so will just speak to what I read.First of all, this book is very well put together. It is loaded with photographs that are interspersed among the pages so that there is a seamless flow from narrative to picture. Some of the [...]

    Een heel mooi, heftig boek over het leven in Syrie, in Aleppo. Geschreven door Bana, een meisje van 8, maar ook door haar moeder. We zien hoe het leven eerste best goed was, toen slechter en slechter werd, en op een gegeven moment helemaal de mist in ging. Neem tissues mee, ik had een aantal momenten dat ik gewoon even tranen in mijn ogen kreeg. Er zijn ook foto's bij, van de familie en van de vernietiging in de omgeving. Zeker een aanrader!

    At last, I have a book that I can cite as a real-life case for the benefits of social media. One that saves lives.I was vaguely reminded of I Am Nujood, Age 10 and Divorced while reading this; they both have a native English speaker edit a young girl's writings for proper English formatting. It loses a degree of authenticity in the exchange, but it's nicely balanced by heartfelt letters by Bana's mother, compilations of Bana's actual tweets, and scans of Bana's actual transcript within the inner [...]

    This book is so beautiful. Bana is a wise and kind soul. For being only 8 years old now, she has shown strength and empathy far beyond her years. It is incredible that despite the horrors she has experienced in her brief life that she still believes in peace and the goodness of the human spirit. Her parents and family demand respect and gratitude for raising such an inspiring child. I hope that the world takes a page from Bana’s book. Every person needs to read this book. Regardless of your th [...]

    What a beautiful little girl with a powerful story! This is a fast read, but it gives the world a lot to think about.

    As I started this book, I was reminded of Martin Niemöller's famous quotation:First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Socialist.Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Trade Unionist.Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Jew.Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.This is the non-fiction account of young girl in Aleppo during the Syrian Civil W [...]

    twitter/alabedbana?lang=enA widely circulated photo of Alan Kurdi , a 3-year-old boy who drown in the Mediterranean whilst seeking refuge from the war in Syria, once prompted global outrage. and was then seemingly forgotten about. There is still a war going on and children are still being bombed and killed. Bana's twitter feed is not rainbows and butterflies, but it's important. I'm not sure what I can do to help, but I'm grateful for the reminder and that I got to read this.

    Bridget
    One of the best, most worthwhile books I've ever read. Bana did a great job of telling her story and is a truly special person. Her mother's passages were also moving and beautiful in their own right. I couldn't be happier that they are safe and sound, and I highly recommend this book.P.S. Bana if you're reading this, thank you for having the courage to speak out on behalf of your people, and God bless.

    Bana Alabed. What an amazing child to use Twitter to relay the dire situation in Aleppo as it unfolded. Thank goodness the Turkish government provided the means for Bana's family and so many others needed to bring them to safety. The final lines: "I want there to please be peace. I am now eight years old, and this is my wish."

    Aimee
    Should be required reading for every world leader, every human. The realities of war told purely, unabashedly, through a child's eyes. Please read.

    This has been one of the most impactful books I have ever read. I never really understood the extent of the horrors people in war torn countries go through. It is easy to associate war and deaths. What we don't realize is that the trauma that survivors carry in their hearts forever - is even more painful. Bana Alabed has given us a unfiltered view into war stricken Syria. The amount that people there had to endure. This is a heart wrenching read as the eight year old child takes you down her pai [...]

    It’s hard for the average Western middle-class child, ensconced in relative safety, to imagine what it must be like to live in a country that is experiencing a revolution. ‘Dear World: A Syrian Girl's Story of War and Plea for Peace’ by Bana Alabed, is a short, compelling book written by a mother and daughter describing what it’s like for a middle-class family when their city of Aleppo, Syria experiences government bombing and a breakdown of city services due to war and civil unrest.Bana [...]

    Dear World: A Syrian Girl’s Story of War and Plea for Peace, Bana Alabed, author, Lameece Issaq, narratorThis is a very brief account of Syria’s Assad’s war against his own people. it is unusual because it is written by a seven year old at the time it begins, who turns eight years old by the time it concludes. Bana Alabed’s courageous message will resonate in the hearts and minds of every one who absorbs it. Who else but a child could so clearly see the pain and waste of war? Who else bu [...]

    When the most recent war began in Syria, Bana Alabed was just 3 years old. Today she’s 8 and although she and her family have escaped their country of birth for a neighbouring one, they long for the day when they might be able to return to a peaceful place and get on with living their lives in the place they still call home.I will fully admit to ignorance about a lot of world issues and the war in Syria is one of them. I know it’s going on but I only have the vaguest of understandings as to [...]

    Note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my opinions on the book, which remain entirely my own. Bana Alabed rose to prominence on Twitter, where she used the online platform to describe the experience of a brutal civil war through the eyes of a child. Bana was just three years old when war broke out in Syria, and her life changed forever. Written like a diary, with intermittent chapters authored by her mother, Dear World is a testament to th [...]

    "Dear World" is a memoir by a seven-year-old about her experiences during war in Aleppo, Syria. Her mother also wrote short sections giving a mother's perspective on the events described by Bana. They don't talk about the grand scale of what was happening but described what it was like for a peaceful family caught up in a war in their city. We learned a bit about what Bana's life was like before war arrived in Aleppo, how life changed, what her family went through, and how they got out.Bana wond [...]

    It may be clichéd but no child should ever be a witness to the horrors of war. Indeed no one should, but children most especially should never have to feel their world or their lives will end in the bombing of their homes or communities. It is incredible about the terrors that people, and children, are resilient too, but it leaves scars. Bana was only seven years old when she went through hell and managed to stagger out to the other side. As pointed out in this book not every child or family wa [...]

    It's a heart breaking story told through the eyes of a 7 year old yet s also full of hope. At times it can be trite. You wonder if a child would really say/ do some things. There is a feeling of hope throughout the book- hope that the war will stop, that they will be rescued, that Syria will return to normal. The book gives a good perspective on the normal everyday lives of "regular" people who just want to work, eat, spend time with family and friends. These are people who aren't involved in po [...]

    I read this book during my 2 1/2h bus ride back to London and I can tell you it really set my life in perspective. It is so pure and innocent how this Syrian 8 year old girl tells the story of the war in Aleppo. She has all these question that about the war but nobody can really answer them. Furthermore it is also new that you see the war from a child’s perspective which is really interesting because as she says herself during the book: there are no children in Aleppo they have all grown to be [...]

    Every bit as heartbreaking as you think it will be. There are so many people I wish would read this book (like our President, if I thought he were actually reachable). One of the things that really comes through is that this is an ordinary family. For all those content to force out of their brains the civilians who are living through these far-away wars, reading this book would make it far more difficult to do that. This is just a family trying to live their lives amid senseless killing. Bana is [...]

    After I brought this home from the library on Friday, Ivy picked it up before I did. She finished it in two hours early Sunday morning, and I read it on Tuesday. This short, beautifully simple memoir brings us straight into the living room of an Aleppo apartment last winter, during the siege that almost killed the 8 year old author and her family. The innocence of her plea for peace demands that we protest our government's tolerance of Russia's role backing this monstrous regime. Even Bana's neu [...]

    "I turned eight while I was working on my book so I got to make a wish when I was blowing out my candles. It was hard to decide on only one wish, because I have many, like: I want to never have to hear or see a bomb again. I want to be able to go home to live in Aleppo one day. I want a baby sister. I want to go to school and to university. But most of all, I want people to stop fighting with bombs and guns in Syria and all over the world. I want there to please be peace. I am now eight years ol [...]
