Combining the knowledge of teacher librarianship and expertise in Middle Eastern countries, these two authors have done yeoman service to teacher librarians by creating this guide to Middle Eastern culture as well as sources for inclusion in the collection. Chapters explain the cultures of the region and then provide annotated lists of materials complete with reviews and recommended levels for use. With so many of our children and teens whose parents are involved in the area, we all need to take a larger and more in depth view of these cultures to promote understanding and tolerance, particularly because we now have so many people here in this country who have migrated from these areas. We have not seen a better and more complete guide to this area. Materials may be out of print because titles reach back a ways, but it provides a guide to books not usually in the limelight. Be sure to check out the many activities with these materials suggested at the end of the volume. An essential purchase.
