Synopsis

Many Windows Six Kids, Five Faiths, One Community by Elisa Carbone, Rukhsana Khan, Elisa Carbone, Uma Krishnaswami

In the midst of global turmoil, with people of various faiths in major conflict, three friends--a Muslim, a Christian and a Hindu--decided to write a book. Many Windows is a book about young people who are friends despite their religious differences. It's a book about celebrations, that ultimately celebrates community. Many Windows is a collection of seven stories about six children who are in the same class at school, two white boys, a black girl, a Chinese girl, an Indian girl and a Pakistani boy. They are not necessarily friends, but they all come together in one commnunity at the end of the stories. Each story in the collection centres on a different celebration within the faith of that child. In the appendix, each of the celebrations is explained in more depth, as it is celebrated within that faith community: Buddhism, Islam, Christianity, Judaism and Hinduism. Each story represents a window into the life of the child, or, from a different point of view, the child's window looking out to the world.
