THE ARABIC QUILT An Immigrant Story

by | Read by Soneela Nankani, Marisa Blake, Stephanie Willing, Kelsey Navarro, Qarie Marshall

Children Ages 6+ • 12 mins. • Unabridged • © 2020

A full cast of narrators brings life to this audiobook, making listeners feel like we are in the kitchen with Kanzi's Egyptian family or in her third-grade classroom at school. On her first day of school, a classmate, Molly, teases her about her native language. Her teacher responds by assigning a class project that teaches the value of being bilingual: a quilt with all the students' names in Arabic. Lively music enhances the happy mood of triumph as the class quilt is unveiled. By the end of the audiobook, Molly's voice has changed from snobbish to contrite, and Kanzi's from ashamed to proud. Also included is a glossary of Arabic words spoken in Egyptian dialect and a list of English words derived from Arabic. S.C. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2020]
