About this title



From Booklist:

Gr. 1-3. As in the six previous titles in their well-conceivedWhat Was It Like, Grandma? series, Morris and Linenthal once again usethe universal bond between children and grandmothers as a springboardto another culture. This time, the characters are Arab American girls,ranging in age from four to seven, and their grandma Hekmatt, whoseems as quick to laugh as she is to offer lessons in Arabic orstories about life back in Egypt. Seemingly candid photos recordplayful moments--impromptu belly dancing, making cookies--as well asserious ones, as when Grandma helps the girls don the hejab(headscarf) at their mosque. Following the series formula, oldphotos contribute to the sense of peeking inside an album, while acraft and tips section for exploring family history provides extensionactivities. Featuring immigrants more established in this country thanthe family in Bernard Wolf's Coming to America [BKL Ap 1 03], thisserves as a welcoming point of entry into a culture for whichpositive, humanizing representations are keenly needed.
