Become a Spelunker in One Small Square

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

What is a spelunker?! Young learners find out in One Small Square: Cave

Continuing with the review of the One Small Square series, today, in'shaa Allaah, we will take a look at this exciting book. 

In One Small Square: Cave, children will explore the stunning world of caves in this beautifully illustrated book, and while their eyes feast on the many wonders found in caves, they will learn how Allaah has shaped and formed and created the rocks, plants, and animals that live in caves. 

Children will also learn that Allaah has created some animals to live in caves - in complete darkness - their entire lives. Many of these creatures are blind and some even have no eyes at all. Subhana'Allaah! 

Young learners will discover that caves have a zone called the twilight zone and it is in this zone where plants grow and many animals that do not live their entire lives in caves come to rest, give birth, and escape cold and danger.  

Like the other books that have been reviewed so far in this series, educators will need to reword and correct a few sentences that refer to nature as a force that creates, maintains and sustains creatures and plants, instead of Allaah aza wa jal. Alhamdulillaah, these sentences are few (only two or three short sentences in this book, if I am not mistaken), and they are easily reworded.  

In'shaa Allaah, in One Small Square: Cave, children will continue to enjoy their journey through and exploration of the natural world that Allaah has created, and if you haven't already read the reviews for some of the other books in this series, you can do so here in'shaa Allaah. 

Until the next book in'shaa Allaah...
