Jamal's Journey


A small caravan of camels is making its way across the hot and sandy desert.  One young camel, Jamal, watches the long legs of his mama and baba as tehy stride easily forward.  But Jamal's legs are little and it's hard for him to keep up.  "Walk. Walk. Walk." Suddenly there is a roaring noise and Jamal is lost.

Filled with light and the warmth of the desert this simple story shares the universal fear of being separated from those you love set against the contrast of the Bedouin culture and the sparkling towers of the city of Dubai.

A beautiful, gentle story filled with sunlight, this makes a wonderful introduction for our youngest listeners to the land of the Middle East.
