Nevertheless, I do hope to encourage children to be enriched and curious, rather than fearful of cultural difference and to see the ‘stranger’ as most probably, in the ways that really matter, not a stranger at all. Highly recommend to anyone looking for children's books about the world's diverse peoples, and those things that tie us together - think books like Children Just Like Me, or My Librarian Is a Camel: How Books Are Brought to Children Around the World - or to fans of Jeannie Baker, and wordless picture-books. A kasbah was a mud brick fortified lordly residence often having four crenulated towers, one at each corner of the walls.

But travelling alone in remote Morocco, a woman ‘stranger’ myself, I was met with much friendliness and generosity from ‘strangers’ The idea for my next project was right there and ideas for a story naturally started to grow. Compare families/cultures that speak the same language or possibly compare more than 2 different families/cultures?

Designed to be read side by side -- one from the left and the other from the right -- these intriguing stories are told entirely through richly detailed collage illustrations. Especially as this is a lovely soft warm pink, I chose to reflect this same soft pink in the background colour of the pages throughout. Two diverse cultures, countries and families are linked with warmth and charm in this two-in-one picture book. Consequently I decided to make a special trip to Taznakht, to try and understand the basic design and symbols underlying their carpets, which it seems the women in the Valley of Roses have been much influenced by. Text to world connection- Since this book has two stories about different places/cultures that relate to real world events I think text to world connection would be accurate.

These tales are obvious companion pieces, meant to be read together, in their facing page foldouts, and they follow their two young protagonists through days that are both similar and dissimilar. The use of technology permeates both the Western world and the African world, standing in sharp contrasts to the natural beauty. While the right side is more calm and peaceful because of the desert land, the minimal people around, and the praying.In this ingenious, wordless picture book, readers are invited to compare, page by page, the activities and surroundings of children in two different cultures. Through this activity, students would be making inferences based on the pictures as well as practicing seeing from multiple perspectives. As my ideas slowly evolved, the oblong boxes grew larger until each was eventually the size of a page of the book I hoped would interest my publisher. And then she has to collect water from the well, milk the cow, find and collect eggs and bake bread for breakfast.

Be smarter than me, be more like Ivy, she can figure out how to open it, see: It opens from the middle out… very tricky. The collage illustrations use a variety of materials: sand, earth, clay, paints, vegetation, paper, fabric, wool, tin, and plastic on a wooden base.

And soon we had arranged to meet at 3am the next morning, though I would need to find a mule to ride on.
