    This short photographic book describes life in the Sahara Desert from the point of view of a boy, Manda, of the Tuareg nomadic people. They ride camels and wear twenty-foot long veils around their heads, but there is plenty Western children can relate to about Manda's life. It is a beautifully crafted book that is perfectly suited to elementary students. It would work well as a read-aloud or could be read independently by older elementary kids. I hear there is a new edition (2007).

    This book has tons of awesome pictures. "Sahara" is a book about a camel caravan going to a camel race. This book is written to show how the Tuareg people live. Unfortunately, this book is not very in-depth, but it has lots of pictures and is short enough to be engaging to young readers. I enjoyed this book enough to pick it out from the library.

    A well-photographed and educational book aimed at younger readers, the information is useful for readers of any age who don't know about the Tuareg.

    Not as in-depth as I had hoped.

    This is an informative and apolitical book about the Tuareg people of the Sahara. The photos are beautiful and the text is interesting. It's appropriate for younger students, grades 2-5.
