Deep in the Sahara by Kelly Cunnane

Deep in the Sahara by Kelly Cunnane

This gorgeous book will make an impression on anyone who reads it. The reader will go on an adventure of discovery following a little girl searching the significance of 'malafa' (hijab).


She learns that the malafa is not worn for beauty, tradition, or mystery but it is practiced by those with faith. The form of language used to describe the scenery in this book is outstanding. The colourful illustrations really makes this book memorable. This book highlights a religious trait that is set in the country of Mauritania so there is a bit of cultural influence in the story. In the back, a glossary and an author's note is included to explain the inspiration behind it.


Most public libraries will have this book, so on your next visit make sure to look for this lovely read.
