We Visit Pakistan

One of the things I loved to do in my school library was to visit other countries. One of the last places we visited last school year was Pakistan. 

One of the parents at my school was born in Pakistan and shared some clothing, some household items, and even some food from Pakistan with the children in my school

Afterward, of course, I read them stories set in Pakistan: Four Feet, Two Sandals, a poignant story of two refugee girls who share a pair of sandals; and For the Right to Learn: Malala Yousafzai's Story, a children's biography of a girl in Pakistan who dared to speak up for the right for girls to get an education.

We loved visiting Pakistan.

  4. Pakistan is a country I would love to visit too. Happy WW!

  5. I love that you do this in your library; exposing children to cultures that are different from their own as interesting and exciting is so important.

  6. One of the great things about reading is that you can read about people and places that you've never been to before, or can't visit often. I recently read Never Stop Walking, about a girl who grew up first in caves, and then in the slums of some city in Brazil.

  7. Sounds like great fun and great exposure for the kids.

  8. I wish I could've been one of the students in your school. From all you've shared with us on your blog, I know you were an amazing librarian! They are going to miss you!


Sharing thoughts and experiences about books and reading is why I blog. Thank you for sharing yours.
