Synopsis

I is for Iran by Shirin Adl, Kamyar Adl

I is for Iran, a large country in western Asia bordered by many lands including Russia, Turkey, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan, with the Caspian Sea above and the Persian Gulf and Arabian Sea below. It is a country of contrasts, where high-rise city buildings stand beside ancient mosques, vast deserts sprawl alongside mountains and forests, and what was once the ancient Persian civilisation is now the oil-rich Islamic Republic of Iran. From Bazaar to Naan, from Chelo-kabab to Rugs, this book celebrates everything Iranians love best about their country.

Reviews

A good addition to the cultural studies section of your nursery's book collection, though there is plenty of enjoyment to be had from the simple visual delight of the pictures. Montessori International
