written by Nigel Gray, illustrated by Philippe Dupasquier. Simple text relates the events in daily living for two boys while split-page illustrations show life in two very different cultures. Told in the first person by two young boys, this story relates their identical experiences-going to school, having a baby sister, shopping, and playing sports-with very different results  . A Country Far Away provides a delightful way to explore the similarities and differences of two disparate cultures in greater depth. These books make a good starting point for further exploration of cultural diversity.

This simple picture book provides an interesting comparison of the lives of two children who are living across the world from each other. I have been to Uganda several times and the portrayal of a rural African child's life is pretty close to what I experienced. The book is respectful and presents the lives of both boys in a positive way. The ending ("Today I looked at some pictures of a country far away. ) is a great opening to encourage young children to think outside of their immediate neighborhoods.

by Nigel Gray, Philippe Dupasquier (Illustrator). I loved the book "A Country Far Away" for a few reasons. The book is set up similarly to a graphic novel, with multiple panels on each page, separated in the middle by the text; the panels on the top are illustrated to display one boy’s life, while the panels on the bottom are meant to display a second boy’s life. The two unnamed boys live in very different places, the boy on top lives in what appears to be a third-world country, in a village with clay and straw homes and very little resources while the boy on the bottom lives in a first-world country, in a suburban neighborhood. The illustrator made a picture of both families standing almost exactly the same, but with different clothing, skin color, and a different setting.

This is a lovely story about the normal events in a child's life. The words for both stories are the same and run through the middle of the page. Illustrations from the point of view of "a country far away" from the the other run above and below the words.

I love this book! I grew up in Nigeria and resonate with the value and beauty of both countries. I enjoy the simple reading and delightful illustrations of life in the two very different yet similar ways of living.

This is such a simple, but wonderful book. The text is very, very, very simple, but the details in the pictures of the two boys lives are wonderful and can captivate kids and grown-ups alike for quite a while. Call me silly, but I actually got a little teary-eyed at the end. It's just so sweet, and such a wonderful way to communicate that we are not so different after all. I highly recommend this book!

This simple picture book provides an interesting comparison of the lives of two children who are living across the world from each other. I have been to Uganda several times and the portrayal of a rural African child's life is pretty close to what I experienced. The book is respectful and presents the lives of both boys in a positive way. The ending ("Today I looked at some pictures of a country far away. I'd like to go there someday...and make a friend.") is a great opening to encourage young children to think outside of their immediate neighborhoods. I recently used this book with a group of 1st graders and they were very interested and receptive.

The view of this book with the children was a learning experience for all.

A wonderful book to show and discuss the similarities and differences in our lives. Children love this book.
I love the idea behind this child's book. As a mother, it really moves me, as I read it with my boys. If you can get your hands on this - definitely add this to your child's library. ENJOY!
