A Country Far Away

A Country Far Away


A remarkable and delightful picture book that shows how children are alike the world over, while at the same time celebrating the rich and interesting diversity of their ordinary lives.

Good for ages Preschool to Grade 3.

"This unusual, sensitive book really brings out our shared human experiences, regardless of race." Child Education "A winner. What I liked about the book was that each kid's life seems far more interesting and exciting than the other's, and it's a hook that I can't see a young reader getting off." Times Educational Supplement "Gray understands that children are capable of insight and compassion, even into complex issues." The Irish Times "Conveys the most complicated ideas effortlessly." Mother Magazine 

Unique among picture books, it avoids didacticism while joyfully celebrating the kinship of human cultures." Review  "There is no sense that one life is better than the other, rather that they are the same tapestry rewoven with a slightly different thread." Parents Magazine
