What Your Child Should Be Reading: Part 1

I LOVE children’s books. Even before I had my little 7aki I was drawn to these books and I loved reading them.

Here are some of my favorite children’s books in no particular order.

They are for different ages, from toddler to Teenager.

1) Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown and illustrated by Clement Hurd.


Such a cute book where the little reader gets to say goodnight to everything in the room , from the picture frame to the brush and the comb ,makes for a very good bedtime ritual.

As a bonus, there’s a little mouse that keeps moving around and is in a different spot on every page, it’s a lot of fun for your child to find it.

2) I Love You Through and Through by Bernadette Rossetti-Shustak
illustrated by Caroline Jayne Church.


Oh how I LOVE this book. You get to read it to your child and point to everything you love about them, from their head to their toes.

3) Green Eggs and Ham by  Dr. Seuss.


 The rhyming, the illustrations and the suspense while Sam is trying to convince the thing to try the Green Eggs and Ham makes the children listening to the story mesmerised. Does he try them? Does he not?

And because of the rhyming and the word repetition, it’s great for beginner readers.

No wonder it’s the fourth best selling English-language children’s hardcover book of all time.

More recommendations to come.

  3. Naser: What age group were you looking for? Green eggs and ham are from 3 – 6
    the other 2 could work from younger to 5 – 6

    About Arabic, I am not too familiar with any since I live in Canada and I don’t have a lot of access to Arabic books but most works are translated to Arabic. Like Pinocchio, Cinderella, three little pigs, the tales of Narnia :).
    It depends on where you live I guess,

    Mo: Dr. Seuss is really good at what he did. Did you know he illustrated his books?
