Anne Alvarez enjoyed writing this book. She hopes young children will enjoy reading it. The idea sparked due to her ambition and knowledge of faraway places. She has found inspiration to motivate others and deliver her feelings to them. You can see how much heart and soul she has put into this book. It is amazingly interesting, after having left the faraway places where you have lived and are familiar with, to note that the ancient civilisation of Iraq – its culture, architecture, music and cuisine – still exist in the progressive way of modern Iraqi life. Intentionally, the book is written for families and professionals alike to read to the infants about ancient places like Baghdad and its civilisation long ago, both in terms of place and time.

Anne Alvarez was born in Baghdad (Iraq) and educated in the American School for Girls (Baghdad).  For more than 17 years, she was a teacher, deputy and acting headmistress of the British Council Kindergarden (Baghdad).  During her teaching career, she spent some time in London as the guest of the British Council, observing teaching methods for children between three and seven years of age, particularly in Froebel Schools.  Anne was attached to Ibstock Place School of the Froebel Educational Institute, Roehampton, where she attended a short course: Creative Work in the Primary School, and short courses organised by the Educational Puppetry Association.  She also paid brief visits to infant and nursery schools in London and Scotland.

    I came across this book and gave it to my Grand Children who absolutely enjoyed it and are always returning to read it again and again. The younger two ask for it to be read to them. Personally, it brought back so many happy memories on my childhood having been born in Africa. No I Pads, Television, telephone, mobiles. We played outdoors with all the neighbors of different religion and backgrounds. We observed the building, landscapes and wondered at how nature was so beautiful. Thank you Anne.
