Children's LiteratureDid you know licorice grows in Iraq? Or that most artwork is created in flower shapes, circles and squares, and called arabesque? This easy to read, nonfiction, middle reader is a fascinating, simple look at Iraq. The book, part of the "Welcome to My Country" series, includes information about family life, education, religion, economics, the land, and the history of Iraq. Each section contains three simple paragraphs overflowing with facts about Iraq. Readers will learn that most Iraqis work a six day week, and men are not encouraged to mix with females. However, Iraq is one of the few Arab countries where females are encouraged to receive an education. The final pages contain a glossary, list of books, and websites to explore. This book is a great choice for students in a social studies curriculum studying Iraq. 2004, Gareth Stevens Publishing, Ages 8 to 12.
