Description

Page by page, we experience the lives of two little boys - one from an urban family in Sydney, Australia, the other from Morocco. Maybe I walked 5-6 km before reaching the souk, by which time I could see paths in every direction, with other people and mules heading there too.

Having kids thinking of that on their own I believe will open them to thinking about life outside themselves and what they are used to. Each year the labour gets harder as they need to travel further to find new suitable areas of grass. I think I liked the idea and the set-up more than the actual artwork and story portrayed, but it is a great idea and a very cool set-up, so it's definitely worth checking out :-) Also, I'm not sure I've encountered any books told with Arabic and English (as I have seen with some Spanish-and-English side-by-side books) so that makes this a great addition to multilingual homes and schools.

The final Sydney traffic scene shows an area close to my home (Tiger country) and is much influenced by the actual and wonderful craziness that went with our local team, Tigers, being a player (about four years ago) in the Grand Final Football match. As you turn the pages you see their families, what they eat, their surroundings, it's fun to spot the differences and the similarities. The hood itself might be folded back to reveal a face or pulled out and mysteriously obscure the face underneath.

The girls packed their donkeys high with grass bundles and we made our way back to Idlerson village: (there hardly being a tree to be seen in all this distance) the girls walking this time though occasionally taking a ride on our mule. The clothing they wear and the food they eat may be different, but both begin the day by dressing, and by having the breakfasts prepared by their mothers.I chose to read this book because as I said, it is very unique, also, I am a quarter Moroccan and I love learning more about the culture since I don’t know much.
