Revisit the story using the link provided.  Explain to your child that they are going to pretend to be the character Lubna. This is called role playing. You (the parent/guardian) are going to ask them questions and your child is going to provide an answer. The purpose of this activity is so that your child understands the character and can elicit emotions and feelings.
