Today I am exited to showcase one of our newest, and most favorite additions to our library: The Tiny Traveler Egypt. One of the best ways to open up the world to different cultures is through reading. This book is part of a multicultural board book series. I believe they are a must-have addition for your culturally responsive and diverse bookshelf.
The Tiny Traveler Egypt: A Book of Shapes
Anyone else out there dress up as Cleopatra or King Tut as a child? Did you pretend to have a chariot race with your friends? Have you ever watched Ben-Hur, The Prince of Egypt, The Mummy, Raiders of the Lost Ark or The 10 Commandments?
The answer to most those is probably a resounding yes.
Egypt ranks very high on the bucket list for traveling for many people, and it is well deserved. I spent time after college teaching children at a youth camp in Cairo. When I returned to teach at an international school, my oldest daughter was born in a hospital on the Nile River. More of our multiracial family story can be found HERE.
Needless to say, any series of books highlighting Egypt is very special. We actively search for books based in Egypt as well as stories about Egyptian culture or history.
This wonderful board book teaches the concept of shapes through using the historical monuments in Egypt. This book takes the significant cultural sites as well as symbols and makes them relatable to an infant. Learn about squares from the carpet on a camel’s back, or triangles from the side of the pyramids. Every parent and child will enjoy learning about a sarcophagus and a scarab beetle as examples of rectangles and hearts.
It is such a revolutionary way to connect and encourage knowledge of history and geography for the youngest children in your life.
