Song to the Sun

  

This delightful book has color-coded fonts allowing it to be read in English, French, spoken Lebanese, or classical Arabic. Beautiful illustrations capture the joys of a wonderful day shared with Yasmina and her friends as they visit her “Secret Place” at the edge of their village. Uncle Fouad shares his love for the land and teaches them a simple ecology lesson with reference to the sun. The concept of “inclusion” is casually shared through the presence of her friend, Ziad, who uses a wheelchair. The story conveys respect and love for nature, family ties, friendship, and culture. Song to the Sun is an enjoyable book that generates interest and pleasure for both children and adults alike.
