Our books are in Egyptian Arabic dialect! They are not in Classical (fusha) Arabic! We chose to write in the spoken language because we know the benefits of reading to young children in their mother-tongue, which is the language our kids acquire naturally from their surrounding environment. We also chose to write in rhymes because they are fun; and research has shown that rhymes develop young children's phonological awareness and pre-literacy skills. We are sure that your children will enjoy these books because they will effortlessly understand them. And when children experience the pleasure of reading, they grow to become avid readers in any language or dialect they later learn in school. We are also sure that you, the parent, will enjoy these books because you will be able to immerse yourself in a dramatic read-aloud performance that captures your child, without worrying about explaining or translating what you are reading. Try our books and let us know if you feel a difference in reading Arabic to your child!
