Books on the Crisis in Ukraine

By Kaitlyn Spotts | April 28 2022 | GeneralSocial StudiesHistoryHigh SchoolMiddle School

As students and teachers navigate these tumultuous times, the power of stories is more important than ever to teach about the past and give context to the present. To help make sense of the current crisis in Ukraine and foster meaningful discussions in the classroom, we’re sharing collections that address themes of war, communism, dictatorship, and the refugee experience.

Our hearts are with the people of Ukraine as this devastating invasion unfolds. To help protect children in crisis, Penguin Random House is donating to longtime partner Save the Children (STC) in support of their Ukraine Crisis Fund and to the emergency fund at Razom.
