There's no greater pleasure for a grammie to hear than that her little grandgirl loved the new book chosen for her. Especially when Grammie is so careful to build Hadley's young library with her. If Hadley says it's a very good book and she wants to hear it read over and over to her, then it gets high marks indeed! This one is a "Grammie Alert" book. We're happy with this inclusive cultural theme, beautiful illustrations and charming characters. Highly recommended for 4-7 yr. olds. Grammie & Hadley give it 5 pink stars
I am a preschool teacher of a diverse group of children. It is really hard to find a children's book that represents Arab people without mentioning or referring to religion - we are unable to talk about religion, etc at school. This book also teaches a great lesson and ALL of my students clamor for a turn to look at this book, regardless of their ethnicity or background.
