|Long Description||"Poetic language, attractive illustrations and a positive message about Islam, without any didacticism: a wonderful combination," declares Kirkus Reviews in a starred review. Lalla lives in the Muslim country of Mauritania, and more than anything, she wants to wear a malafa, the colorful cloth Mauritanian women, like her mama and big sister, wear to cover their heads and clothes in public. But it is not until Lalla realizes that a malafa is not just worn to show a woman's beauty and mystery or to honor tradition—a malafa for faith—that Lalla's mother agrees to slip a long cloth as blue as the ink in the Koran over Lalla's head, under her arm, and round and round her body. Then together, they pray. An author's note and glossary are included in the back of the book.|

Sorry folks for the slow and spotty service to our site yesterday (1/10/2013). There was work being done in the area and it caused general service interuptions.
We experienced poor internet accessability and noticed far fewer visitors than normal to the site. There was a point over night when all internet service went down. We contacted our ISP this morning to find out they were performing maintenance in our area and had to shut down a hub station at one point.
The maintenance in general caused a bottle neck for data in our area and shutting down the hub took us completely off-line for almost an hour.
This is regretable but well beyond our control. We are sorry if this impacted you and access to our data.
