The Leaving Morning This picture book was part of Alexis's homework this week. The illustrations and the text give an accurate portrayal of the sadness of moving away from a home and community in which you have deep personal attachments and the excitement of going someplace new.
A Family In Egypt by Olivia Bennett This book is our read aloud for the week keeping with our Egypt theme at Alexis World Traveler. This book is about a little Egyptian boy that lives in a village near Cairo and his father is a camel driver. A wonderful illustration of how Egyptians live.
