The House of Wisdomby Florence Parry Heide
Timely and timeless -- this illuminating, luminous picture book brings ancient Baghdad to life as it tells the story of one boy's discovery of the power of the written word. This is the story of Ishaq, a young boy in ninth-century Baghdad. And it is the story of the House of Wisdom. More than a house, more than a library, more even than a palace, the House of Wisdom

This is the best book I've read in quite a while. I used it to prepare for teaching a summer enrichment course to 4th grade students. Not only does it appeal to them, but to adults as well. Nothing is more powerful than the search for WISDOM!
