Deep in the Sahara PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Deep in the Sahara free pdf "Poetic language, attractive illustrations and a positive message about Islam, without any didacticism: a wonderful combination," declares "Kirkus Reviews "in a starred review. Lalla lives in the Muslim country of Mauritania, and more than anything, she wants to wear a "malafa, " the colorful cloth Mauritanian women, like her mama and big sister, wear to cover their heads and clothes in public. But it is not until Lalla realizes that a "malafa" is not just worn to show a woman's beauty and mystery or to honor tradition--a "malafa" for faith--that Lalla's mother agrees to slip a long cloth as blue as the ink in the Koran over Lalla's head, under her arm, and round and round her body. Then together, they pray. An author's note and glossary are included in the back of the book. "From the Hardcover edition."
