Designed for ages 8 to 12, this colorful book takes readers on a tour of Lebanon’s history, geography, languages and religions, using 11-year-old Kareem and his friends as guides. The guides cover such different religious and ethnic groups as the Druze, Shi’ite and Sunni Muslims, and Greek Orthodox, explore archaeological sites, visit a wedding and feast on various Lebanese delicacies.

Fun facts, country facts and a glossary end the 76-page book.
