  11. The Date Palm

  The date palm is a wonderful tree. People eat dates. They feed them to their animals. They use the leaves and wood to build houses. They use the wood to build boats. They make baskets from the leaves. They burn the other parts of the trees to cook food.

  The date palm came from the Middle East. Seven thousand years ago, people in Syria and Egypt ate dates. They made pictures of date palms on their stone buildings. Today date palms grow in the Middle East, parts of Asia and Africa, southern Europe, and other warm parts of the world.

  There are more than 2700 kinds of palm trees, most of which can't grow in the Middle East because it is too dry. But the date palm grows well there.

  Hundreds of years ago, people in southern Europe and some Arab countries made pictures of palm trees and palm flowers on some of their buildings. Today we can see these pictures in art museums. People think that the palm tree is beautiful. People thought the same thing a long time ago.
