I woke up and wanted to read…so I did.

Amanda in Arabia: The Perfume FlaskAmanda in Arabia: The Perfume Flask by Darlene Foster

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was an excellent, easy flowing adventure. You meet the very inquisitive Amanda as she begins a journey to the United Arab Emirates and as she learns about this new country, so do you. What I think is so excellent about this book is that it shows a different side to the Muslim culture than most people realize. Unfortunate events in the US have created stereotypes that should and need to be broken–I believe that this is a great book for young and old do to this. It was obvious that the author did plenty of research on the area, yet it was woven skillfully into the book so that it didn’t stand out as unneeded. I can’t wait to see and learn from more of Amanda’s adventures!
