    This lovely and informative book is an absolute delight! It is gorgeous and touching, beautifully written and designed with wonderful interactive features that really make the world of Istanbul come alive. And what a timely book for children on the traditions of Islam. The photography is superb and the storyline expertly crafted. Enjoyable for children and adults alike. I think this would be a terrific book for schools to incorporate in the classroom.

    I really love the story of the boy and his grandfather (Emre & Dede) and their daily ritual/work together. I felt the sense of mystery and joy a child feels and warmth of family. A glimpse into a day in Istanbul square sparked my travel bug. Great short read for kids and adults. The extra media with it is fun too.

    I learned so much about the Islamic faith from reading this book. Loved the interactive features and the beautiful photographs. Can't wait to share with my grandkids. I'm looking forward to more titles from Mr. Ewing.

    What a satisfying, short read! I want to spend a day with young Emre, viewing Istanbul from his perch on the mosque steps. This book celebrates the divine beauty of the individual, experiencing the simple pleasures of a typical day. Turkey, you are on my short list of future travel destinations. This book will definately find its way into my 4th grade reading class. I look forward to observing my students as they react to the the cultural similarities and differences represented in the text. More please!!

    A delightful children's book. The figurative language pulls you right into the story and you feel like you are walking the streets of Istanbul with young Emre. A wonderful tale to read to young children to introduce them to other cultures.
