Alif Baa Taa: An Arabic Alphabet Board Book for Kids!

$10,712

178

Alif Baa Taa, Learning My Arabic Alphabet is a children’s book geared towards introducing the Arabic alphabet, with beautiful, modern illustrations in fus-ha Arabic with Tashkeel. The 6x6 inch 30 page board book will feature a different letter on each page, with a modern corresponding illustration, the word in Arabic and the transliteration.

 

The idea started when Asma (the creator) was looking for an Arabic alphabet book for her daughter. She couldn’t find any modern, aesthetically appealing Arabic books for children written in Fus-ha. She wanted a book that her daughter would be excited to pick up and take everywhere, just as she did with her ABC books. Asma also knew that if she didn’t introduce Arabic at a young age, in a fun and creative way, her daughter would never be excited to learn, it would just become another boring subject in school. 

So, Asma decided she needed to create a book, not just for her own daughter, but for anyone who is interested in introducing Arabic to a young readers. Asma really wants this book to be accessible to all readers. Because of the transliteration, you don't have to know Arabic to read this book. Anyone who can read English can read Alif Baa Taa: Learning My Arabic Alphabet. 

We are also committed to getting our Alif Baa Taa book into the homes of disadvantaged families. We have teamed up with a few local non-profit organizations, where we will be donating our book to little ones in need. Early introduction of a language is critical for all children, their financial status should not hold them back.

1. Thank You Postcard

The postcard features an illustration from the Alif Baa Taa book. Asma will write a personalized thank you note and mail it via USPS

2. Alif Baa Taa Board Book

 

Alif Baa Taa: Learning My Arabic Alphabet will be a 30 page 6x6 inch board book with thick, glossy cardboard paper built to last. Each page will feature an Arabic letter, a modern illustration that corresponds with the letter and the transliteration. 

4. Arabic Alphabet Poster

 

The 18x24 inch glossy, modern poster will be a beautiful addition to any room or classroom. (frame not included)
