Baker's wordless picture book follows the lives of two little boys from very different cultures. Through beautiful illustrations, Baker compares the daily routines of a boy in Australia and a boy in Morocco to show not only the differences, but also the connections between both boys. Original in format and moving in its message, this beautiful story will promote the ability to understand the differences and similarities between cultures.

Beautifully detailed book to compare the day in a life of two very different cultures. Love seeing the differences as well as surprising similarities in the two. There are actually 2 books inside that are meant to be looked at the same time (flipping page for page).
