Book Details

A rich, beautifully layered ode to the great city of Cairo, Egypt, its people, and culture.


Every night, my Ametti Fatma sings the sounds of Egypt to me as I fall asleep.


This is the Nile,
that flows through the city.
Swish, swoosh, swish.
This is the boat,
that glides on the Nile,
that flows through the city.
Swish, swoosh, swish.

Each night, a young girl's Auntie Fatma puts her to bed, singing a lullaby filled with rich imagery of her home in Egypt. As Auntie Fatma sings, we are given a glimpse of modern Cairo, from boats making their way down the Nile to gentle calls to prayer from the mosques to young children joyfully playing soccer in the streets.


Join Zeena Pliska and Hatem Aly on a vibrant journey to Cairo in this gorgeous, layered song.
