Product Details

Praise

With beautiful, meticulously constructed collage, Baker shows two very different worlds…By placing the narratives side by side, opening toward each other, she highlights their similarities.
—The New York Times Book Review

Baker’s entrancing collages, packed with visual information and created with fabric, sand, vegetation and other unusual materials, have the power to bring back child and adult viewers for infinite ‘readings.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

In layered, three-dimensional collages, Baker shows the differences between the families (traveling to an open-air market by donkey versus a trip to a hardware megastore in a Citroën), but it is the underlying commonalities—helping parents, doing chores, caring for pets, sharing meals—that will resonate most.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Viewers will thrill to see the Moroccan dad selling a carpet (woven by the boy’s mother) to a man, while on the facing spread the Australian dad buys that same rug from the same man at a shop called "Magic Carpets." Magic, indeed
—The Horn Book (starred review)

Illuminates the common humanity beneath the surface of cultural differences.
—School Library Journal (starred review)
