Greetings from Morocco

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.

Daddy drew a picture of a Moroccan souk or marketplace.

The children painted it. (Bad Hair Day, I know. But I don't know what Amir was doing.)
