Felix and his brother Francis live in a small isolated house with their great-grandmother, on the edge of the rainforest in Cameroon, West Africa. They collect firewood daily, and cook meals over an open fire, with food grown in the forest. Whenever they dig into the forest earth, they can be sure to find something you can eat. They speak a pidgin English. Felix shows his 10 year-old brother different useful plants, and how to set a trap for animals, their only source of meat. One plant provides “chewing sticks” to clean one’s teeth – toothbrushes and toothpaste are too costly. They attend a dance festival in the nearby village. The dances honor various animals. Many trees have been cut for timber or plantations growing tea or palm trees for palm oil. The deforestation troubles Felix deeply, since his life depends so heavily on the plants and animals of the rainforest. The bark of the African cherry tree is used to reduce a fever, while the juice of another plant will take away eye pain. At school he plays soccer, and studies mathematics, geography and the dangers of deforestation. It usually rains heavily and daily. At a wrestling competition in a nearby town, Felix successfully defends his winning title. Felix likes the rainforest because he can find everything he needs there, and knows that when he grows up, he will want to remain there.
Yasmine Affifi and her family live in a modern apartment in the center of Cairo, the capital of Egypt, on the famous River Nile. It's a modern city and one of the most important centers of the Muslim religion, Islam. The school bus collects her and her brother every weekday; which in the Islamic world means from Sunday to Thursday. She studies English Literature, Math and Science in English, and Arabic, Religion, Geography and History in her national language, Arabic. She likes science, and wants to be a doctor. Her father is a teacher, her mother, a business consultant, and she has a younger brother. There are 15 million people living in Cairo, and the city is growing bigger all the time with more crowding, more pollution and more traffic. After school, she sometimes plays basketball. As a special treat before the Islamic holiday of Eid-al-Adha, the family takes a boat trip on the Nile River. It is also traditional at this time to take gifts to the poor, and Yasmine visits an orphanage to give them the love they really need, as well as gifts. Eid-al-Adha celebrates the biblical time when God told Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice a lamb instead of Ibrahim's son. Women in Egypt do not usually pray in the Mosque but rather quietly at home to their God, Allah. Yasmin and her family visit both their paternal and maternal grandmothers, where many of their relatives, whom they have not seen for a long time, have come together. The food is special for the feast. Yasmin likes to live in Cairo because she is among lots of people, there are lots of shops, and many places to visit. But with the construction of buildings continuing where so many already live along the Nile, on a very narrow strip of fertile land next to the desert, she worries about the future.
