I am back at home—many thanks to Sharjah book-festival organizers for having me and to my family for allowing me to be away!—and my boys are delighting in their new books, Arabic-education materials, and…CDs!
This morning before school, the boys had a chance to listen to Fatima Sharafeddineand Hani Siblini‘s first-ever collaborative children’s CD. The seven-year-old is not a morning person (so it’s quite something for him to enjoy music in the morning!), and the two-year-old, who does like mornings, was already singing along.
I love the fun lyrics, the repetition, the assonances, and the catchy tunes (I can’t seem to get the song طير و علي out of my head!)
