I researched nomads living in desert regions and explored what they would eat, drink, wear and their temporary campsites. I also investigated the physical effects on a person lost in a desert for several days and how the heat, sun and lack of water would affect them. I studied several desert oases looking at the animals, birds and vegetation that would live in this habitat. I decided to have a golden eagle in this book and researched accurate description, habitat, eating habits and their life.
Educational subjects to study with your child for Arabian Lights: Look at the deserts on our planet, study the animal life, vegetation, kind of people that live in deserts, and nomadic life. Study eagles and other birds, especially the golden eagle.
