‘The idea for this book came from my delight travelling in a country very different from my own.’- Jeannie Baker. This beautiful picture book comprises two stories designed to be read simultaneously – one from the left, the other from the right. Page by page, we experience the lives of two small boys – one from Morocco and one from an urban family in Sydney, Australia. The journey of a homemade Moroccan carpet made in one of their homes and ending up in the other home in Australia we are shown how are seemingly separate lives are intertwined. This story can help children explore the key question, ‘How Do We All Live Together?’ and the ways our lives are interconnected.
