Wow! We found this treasure that is "set in Ramallah during the aftermath of the 1967 Six-Day War. The author, Ibtisam Barakat captures what it is like to be a child whose world is shattered by war. With candor and courage, she stitches together memories of her childhood: fear and confusion as bombs explode near her home and she is separated from her family; the harshness of life as a Palestinian refugee; her unexpected joy when she discovers Alef, the first letter of the Arabic alphabet. This is the beginning of her passionate connection to words, and as language becomes her refuge, allowing her to piece together the fragments of her world, it becomes her true home." 176 pages PB

  • Tapestry of Grace families: We found that not only does this book make valuable historical connections, but it is also well-written and helps us focus on a number of literary concepts that we have learned throughout this year.
