Tales of the Hodja

We are enjoying adding stories from this book to our study of the Middle East. It has proved much harder to find readalouds for this region than for other continents. But a friend suggested using tales and legends and that has made it much easier. This book works really well for both boys although I think sometimes some of the humour might be lost in translation. The illustrations of our copy are wonderfully vibrant and compliment the stories well.
