up saving the library from any damage The story is clearly told through a minimal amount of text and eye catching collage pictures created by Susan L Roth The end pages feature photographs of the actual event with correlating captions This book is best suited for a read aloud for the early elementary grades, but could be used to explain the Egyptian conflict all the way through the middle school grades Being a librarian, of course I was inspired by this book I didn t know the details of how the Alexandria Library was saved until I read this book Made me proud to be a librarian I liked the photos of the real events at the end, and the extra information on the library I would like to think that people everywhere would appreciate and protect their libraries Recommended, especially for

would use this book in class while discussing different cultures or even world events I think the fact that this book makes a very serious and scary situation a little less scary but still allows them to get a good understanding for what was happening shows that even young readers are capable of handling serious events I think this book will also make students a littleaware of how valuable the written word is This book tells one of the many stories of the Egyptian revolution that began in January of 2011 In a childlike voice, the narrator shares the exhilaration and hope of a young

excitement, however, there was fear The marches had, at times, developed into riots that led to destruction The narrator is worried that their beautiful library in Alexandria would be damaged As the marchers approach, the librarian steps out and reminds the protesters that the will of the people is the only thing that will protect the library It is at this point that a young man steps forward putting in motion a moment that won t be forgotten The illustrations in this book are done in a mixed media collage style They are colorful and dynamic and add to the intense and suspenseful nature of the story The author notes are informative and helpful as well This book would be appropriate for all ages and could be used to build discussions around civic responsibility, the value of books and history and the power of a single voice The only reason that I did not give this book five stars is because there was not clear context as to why the protesters might damage the library to begin with

Around the Library by Karen Leggett Abouraya and Susan L Roth is an amazing true story about how protesters helped save their library January 25, 2011 Egyptians started their protest towards the President, Hosni Mubarak After his thirty year rule the people finally demanded that he resign In their efforts to get him to resign the streets of Alexandria became a scary mob which ended withthan 800 people dying This protest took place in the streets surrounding the modern Alexandria Library The library director closed the library during the protest but was concerned for the building itself He was afraid that it would be vandalized or possibly worse burned As he stood on the front steps of the building asking for help, people of all ages, cultures and religions stood together in a ring around the building in an effort to save it Not knowing very much about Egypt, I had no idea that they even protested to get their president to resign Therefore this book not only brought to light the idea of people coming together to help a cause but enlightens the reader to a major historical event for the Egyptian people The illustrations are beautifully done in a collage that both colorful and inviting to the readers eye This book would be appropriate for all ages and could be used in multiple ways including point of view, drawing conclusions, compare and contrast, or making connections The book was written in what seemed like a fictional point of view but included authors notes, resources, and pictures at the end of the book for the reader to understand the actual events that lead to
