Deep in the Sahara
I enjoy reading lots of books on different cultures and religions. This book was about a young girl who watches the grown woman in her town and sees them all wearing a malafa. She thinks the malafas are beautiful, mysterious, grown up and make woman look like royalty and she really wants one of her own. Finally when she starts to understand that a malafa is about faith and religion. Then her mom gives her a malafa of her own to wear and she loves it. It’s a beautiful blue color and she is happy to have it. She goes with her mom to pray in her malafa facing east. I didn’t know why they faced east, but my mom helped me learn more about it. I love reading books like this because it’s interesting to see how kids in other places live and to find out about other religions.
