Common Threads: Adam’s Day at the Market

Written by Huda Essa
Illustrated by Mercè Tous
Published by Sleeping Bear Press

Adam and his family spend an exciting day at the colorful and bustling Eastern Market. But when Adam gets briefly separated from Mom and Dad, he mistakes a friendly, diverse cast of characters for his parents in their traditional Muslim clothing—and shows that we all have more in common than you might think. This nearly-wordless picture book celebrates diversity and community in vibrant, dynamic art.
