All this traveling, man, I'm tired. Sike!
I've always been intrigued by the country of Morocco. It is just so beautiful and colorful. The book below, My Father's Shop, was a nice introduction for the children of the Moroccan way of life. They enjoyed decorating an old pillow case to represent a carpet. We painted a scene from a Moroccan marketplace or souk. A large majority of the Moroccan people are Muslim, so that was good for them to see. We enjoyed this study, now it's off to Turkey!
A couple library resources.
