Mirror is a lush book that tells two tales of two cultures through rich collage pictures that will generate thoughtful conversations. The book opens to tell simultaneous stories of life in Morocco and life in Australia. There are predictable differences, but also surprising similarities between the two worlds. This is a wordless picture book for the most part, although some text is written in the two very different writing systems and languages of these two cultures--a point of curiosity in itself. This is a book that is best shared with a small group of children sitting close, so they can pour over the pictures and add comparisons to a third culture--their own.
