Look what arrived! Mary E. Robbins and Nabil Sibouih of moth written made this beautiful image for I’m Your Neighbor, Portland and I’m Your Neighbor Books. The phrase “I’m Your Neighbor” was collected in different languages by author/illustrator and I’m Your Neighbor, Portland advisor Anne Sibley O’Brien from Portland Public Schools’ Multilingual and Multicultural Center staff and from friends of Mary and Nabil.
moth written is a “Moroccan-American marriage in Maine.” In Morocco, a moth is a good omen. Mary and Nabil honor their family there by encouraging positive dialogue about the Arabic speaking world through the creation of t-shirts, bags, and pins in Arabic.
