Two stories, two cultures

by Jeannie Baker

I like the design of this book, which allows you to read two stories simultaneously. The stories show a day in the life of two families in two countries - Australia and Morocco. Since the stories are wordless, it allows readers to closely scrutinize both cultures to discover their similarities and their differences; to look at ourselves in a mirror. It's a good book to share with others of all ages.
