The Turtle of Oman by Naomi Shihab Nye
“This chapter book is about Aref and his parents, who are about to move from Oman to Ann Arbor, Michigan. His grandfather takes him around town to do their favorite things together for the last time before he leaves. They go fishing, they sleep on the roof under the stars…The book is a really sweet story about a grandfather and a grandson, and also a window into another culture and its beautiful and idiosyncratic traditions. I love anything by Naomi Shihab Nye and anything that incorporates traditional Middle Eastern storytelling techniques. I would recommend this book to children age 8-12.” You can find The Turtle of Oman on our shelves or via bookpeople.com. Signed copies are available.
