Activities for under 5's, Arabic Children's Books

Arabic Children’s Books Resources

 Above are some books I bought from Al- kitab – quite expensive but I loved the content and design. http://www.alkitab.com/7513.html

It is recommended to teach using Qaidat ul Baghdaadiyyah as it teaches reading very well. 
The Lost Island. Written by Mahjoub Omar, illustrated by Nabil Taj. Fourth edition print, 1988, Dar al-Fata al-Arabi

This picture was taken from SOORAH tumblr blog , I have no idea how to get hold of the book I just posted it as it is reminiscent of the few Arabic children’s books I had as a child back in the 80s. I love this type of illustration for children – it is so atmospheric and inspiring.
