Mirror by Jeannie Baker

First off if you go find this book don’t be like me. Don’t pick it up, open it and think that it must be defective because there are no pages. 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 book follows two boys, (the boy on the left lives in Sydney Australia and the one on the right lives in Morocco) as they go about their day.

Designed to be looked at together it requires a lot of space to open it all up, but it’s totally worth it.

The pictures that tell the story are amazing collages… …with unbelievable detail. Ivy and Clara didn’t really pick up much of the different culture, same life aspect but their interest in the pictures more than made up for it.

Would I recommend it? Yes, I’m hoping to remember this book again when the girls are a little older and can understand a bit more, but it was worth it just to check out the cool chickens!
