Annotation

Charlie and his best mate, Khaled, were born on the same day, at the same hospital and live in the same street. Charlie describes Khaled and his family, religion and customs in a way that is easy to understand, yet respectful and friendly. It is a useful resource for non-Muslim children and adults who wish to learn more. It is also a book about friendship and the sharing of activities. At the end of the book is a glossary as well as a double page of activities to do with our wonderful world. Simple and colourful illustrations show families sharing time together.
