Description

Sahara: Vanishing Cultures is a new title from Lee and Low Publishers in their Explore Vanishing Cultures Series. Each title in the series examines an Indigenous culture as the people attempt to face the challenges of their changing environment. In this book, the author offers elementary readers an opportunity to see a contemporary Tuareg family. This family lives in the Sahara and the picture book offers readers a glimpse into their lives through the eyes of a boy in the family. Despite the challenges of a desert climate, the people have adapted through the use of their clothing styles, effective use of camels, their housing, and foods. The stunning colour photographs by the author Jan Reynolds takes the reader into the child's world of camels, caravans, and festivals. The endnote by the author describes her connection to the people and environment of the Sahara. Guided Reading: Level P; DRA: 38; Intervention: 24.
