In a list of book suggestions for children in the Globe and Mail, Jeffrey Canton chose to highlight "Homeland: My Father Dreams of Palestine" by Hannah Moushabeck (Chronicle Books, 2023). The book explores the Palestinian diaspora experience in a way that is accessible and relevant to young readers. In a media landscape that often omits or, worse, deliberately silences Palestinian perspectives, it is a welcome addition and should to be celebrated. After a conversation with Mr. Canton, we’ve learned he is already under attack from pro-Israel groups for suggesting this book.
