Great book. Nice to know about other country's culture.
My kids loved it. I read it in my story telling session to stand in support for the Palestenian muslims . We painted the palestenian flag after the reading. This book just gives a little view to the kids about muslims like me and you subject to leaving their houses. The underlying theme of sharing is a win win for me and the subtle way the author addresses sibling rivalry is just amazing. In all I would highly recommend this book to all kids and adults. Cuz hey we all love pictures stories and there is no age limit to kid.lit...happy reading:)
