Video Music:

Written by Mirko Šenkovski Geronimo & Ismar Poric.
  In the country of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Muslims, Orthodox Christians and Catholics have been living side by side for many years, but they have not always gotten along.  Twenty years have passed since they were at war with each other.  How can neighbors of different faiths live together in peace?
Pope Francis, the leader of the Roman Catholic Church, paid a visit to Bosnia on June 6, 2015. This is the true story of a Muslim family of carpenters who designed and made a chair in honor of this occasion.  
Drawn from interviews with the senior carpenter, extensive research, and consultation from an imam and a priest, this book is for children, parents, grandparents, … for everyone!
