The Little Yellow Bottle

Marwa has learned a lesson that no child should have to face: that war can come in the most innocent of packages.

Marwa and Ahmad know that war has come to their country, but its effect on their lives are small and life in their village goes on as normal. One day, a group of planes flies over their village. They learn that the planes dropped small unexploded bombs all over the countryside, now hidden and lying in wait.

But life goes on, and the children once again forget about war – until a day when Marwa and Ahmad are playing, and Ahmad picks up a small yellow bottle. The resulting explosion will change their lives forever.

The Little Yellow Bottle is narrated by the voice of Marwa, who has learned a lesson that no child should have to face: that war can come in the most innocent of packages. But the story ends on a real note of hope and with a dedication to children everywhere who have suffered the effects of war.
