“What was it like, Grandma; Grandma Hekmatt Remembers,” was extremely informative and I enjoyed reading this text fro three reasons. Grandma Hekmatt was born and raised in Egypt. Grandma tells the stories of her childhood to her three granddaughters with the intent of teaching them about their Arab-American culture. I found this text to be extremely informative. The book is filled with photographs of Grandma Hekmatt during her childhood. Each photo is captioned with a description of what exactly is going on in the picture. I also appreciated how the text was presented in the book. On one page of the book there would be a photograph of something that is prominent in the grandmother’s Egyptian culture (ex. belly dancing) and then on the other side of the page there would be a photo of something prominent in the granddaughters culture in the U.S. (ex. playing on the swings). One last aspect that I loved about this book was that it included an activity in the book for readers to participate in if they wished. The activity was a description of how to make an Egyptian paper boat. I found this activity to be engaging and it took the education of this new culture to a new level. ( )
