Children's Literature - Elisabeth Greenberg
Learn to count in Farsi and find out about Iran as you do it. This premise guides this small book, leading the authors to present facts in an entertaining and interesting manner. Every country in the Middle East is rapidly gaining importance in the United States and this book solves the problem of introducing young children to this relatively unknown geographic region. The short introduction explains where Iran is, relates it in size to Alaska, and gives a few basic facts (population, language, alphabet, history). The information on each number page illustrates one facet of contemporary or historical Iran, from the locally made car and transportation to the ancient towers of silence of the little practiced religion of Zoroastrianism, to the favored sport of wrestling. The colorful illustrations add to the fun of the book, capturing unique aspects of the lifestyle, dress, and landscape.
