Prior to reading this book, I didn’t think about Syria. But now how when this story takes place, it makes me notice how Syria has now been cut apart like mosaic tiles.
This book is about a pair of siblings, and how they trek across Syria on an adventure set up by their Grandpa. Now, they ARE NOT from Syria. They are transported to Syria in a magical doorway that their grandpas journal opened up. On the journey they meet many people who knew their grandpa and aid them.
I recommend this book to 2nd and 3rd graders. ( they may need help reading it, though )
